In the transition towards to a sustainable society for all, an emerging design discipline: System Design for Sustainability
for All (SD4SA) has been proposed by the LeNSin project-the International Learning Network of networks
on Sustainability (Erasmus+ programme, EU funded-2015-2019), where focusing on developing the new knowledge-
base and know-how for designing Sustainable Product-Service System (S.PSS) applied to Distributed Economies
(DE). This paper describes a (co)-design and visualisation tool within the SD4SA discipline: “Stakeholder
System Map for S.PSS&DE”, deeply modified from the first system map tool (Jégou et al., 2002) and adapted to
the specific context of designing S.PSS solutions to DE models, that can enable an effective integration of seven DE
types and five DE configurations. It has been evaluated within a set of pilot courses of LeNSin project, but also with
experts to lead to the final tool that is freely available and open access on the LeNS website.
