Future forecasting is a tool that the designer should use in his or her practice, to envision beyond the current framework of products, services and systems.
This is my Service Design MA thesis.

Furthermore, it is clear that an essential code of ethics doesn't exist.
As a possible solution, I propose a non-essential, open-textured ethical framework, structured as an open manifesto.
