Design care models toward the ideal of human flourishing

Flourishing represents both the thriving of individuals, “living a good life” and the sustainment of human and all life. A flourishing society may be defined as one that accounts for at least the individual, organizational, and societal factors of human development, yet at each of these levels the meaning of flourishing differs.  Design principles can be oriented toward achieving shared, desired future outcomes. If we construct and agree on a common understanding of flourishing, we will be able to determine or characterize how persons and our societies can flourish in a living system. A socioecological system perspective is proposed as a theoretical framework to support the integration of different views of flourishing.
