We will examine how to strengthen social change campaigns by applying the principles of user centred design employed by software/tech designers. User-centred design tries to optimise the development of a product around how users can, want, or need to use a product, rather than forcing the users to change their behaviour. For social change campaigners, user-centred design can be characterised as a multi-stage problem solving process that not only requires campaigners to analyse and foresee why stakeholders are likely to benefit and become involved in a campaign, but also to test the validity of their assumptions.
