Hi Brita, 
 
I considered the reflection of Product Design students in relation to social sustainability as part my PhD. 
 
Essentially it centred around the use of focussed workshops using audiovisual resources and questioning techniques, which is documented in the following two papers: 
https://journals.hioa.no/index.php/formakademisk/article/view/1402/1254 
https://ojs.lboro.ac.uk/DATE/article/view/1924/1966 
 
The full PhD Thesis is additionally located here:

Kind regards, 
Matthew
