                                                      Brief

                                                      Tackle issues creatively to improve your ideas for a better society!

                                                      Design thinking is the process of creative thinking to solve issues and find ways to benefit society with an inventive idea and focusing on its pre-production process. Design thinking can be used to address social challenges. During this 4 day workshop, participants will understand the value of design to benefit society and learn ways to use design thinking for social development. Learn how to analyze, recognize, and formulate local social problems. In an engaging session, you will discuss ideas, implement test results, and receive feedback in the initial design thinking process to maximize impact.
