Through the review of literature, as part of a PhD research undertaken at Loughborough University, a relationship between Service Design and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) has been identified. It positions Service Design and its participatory design methodology as an integral change agent within this context. A lack of literature defining such theoretical positioning means that service designers do not have a defined space to operate within nor do they have a view of a broad impact that their action can have. This paper presents findings from the literature review that positions Service Design as a transformative change approach in the context of ESD.
