                                                      Brief

                                                      Design is often associated with decoration and luxury. However, design thinking can also be used to address social challenges. During the 4-day workshop, participant will understand the value of design for social impact and learn in what ways design can be a tool for social development. They will learn how to analyze, recognize and formulate local social problems. In an engagement session, they will discuss their ideas, implement test results and get feedback in the initial design to increase its impact.
