Toledo, Guilherme ; Cipolla, Carla ;

Artigo completo:

This paper aims at discussing the use of the Well-Being construct proposed by Martin Seligman as a theoretical framework for the design of Social Innovation. As practical and social implications of this discussion, we propose the development of alternative solutions which intentionally focus on their impact on the five dimensions which constitute well-being for the users (positive emotion, engagement, meaning, accomplishments and positive relationships), expanding the positive social impact of these solutions in direct and indirect ways, as well as a creative framework which may allow for the design of new disruptive models of consumption and value exchange between individuals and communities.
