Developing countries face a group of socioeconomic problems which need new creative designed solutions. A holistic approach would be ideal. However, the governments’ financial capabilities disallow such an approach and problems are arranged in a hierarchy that follows a top – bottom approach. Prioritizing socioeconomic problems following a bottom -top scenario is possible based on what the younger generations perceive as the most pressing problems that need to be prioritized.
The paper implements a methodology of statistically analyzing design problems that were freely determined and researched by design students as the most pressing from their perspective.
Keywords: Design tool, Domestic Problems, Design Education, Design and Society.
