This paper investigates the idea of storytelling in design for social innovation. Big narra- tives such as consumerism, neo-liberalism, and individualism that characterise our contem- porary society are slowly crumbling.Alternative sustainable behaviours such as bartering, swapping, fixing, sharing are currently emerging. How can we tell these stories that are alter- native to the big narratives?The paper reflects on how contemporary design practices in the field of social innovation are telling stories of social innovation and creating possibilities for present and future actions.
