Participatory Design (PD) is essentially an approach within the wider field of design, focused especially on people, inclusion and processes to ultimately ensure productive results. It is an older design area, widely recognized and defined as the foundation for most modern human-centric design disciplines, such as UX Design, HCI, IxD, software development and co-design. Historically, it stems from Scandinavian democracy models, and the fundamental idea is to involve all people, whom the results will affect. Ultimately, PD thus has a high focus on collaborative and inclusive practices - or “Democratic” if we stick to the heritage of the design tradition.
