Sketching Local Solutions to Global Problems
Though it might seem like a relatively new concept and buzzword, Design Thinking has been around for quite some time. It’s now the moment to see how it can be used to generate solutions and prototypes addressing the world’s biggest challenges.
This is a continuation of our series of design thinking for social impact workshops, but if you didn’t attend our previous workshops, no worries. We’ll catch you up.

- Goal 1: No Poverty
- Goal 2: Good Health and Well-Being
- Goal 5: Gender Equality
- Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities
