Design for Problems Worth Solving

July 9, 2016 @ 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Why do we believe design is at the intersection of community organizing and social innovation? We’re here to ignite your vision on how to leverage design for complex social challenges. We’ll get our gears working in understanding all aspects of our design challenges for summer 2016, on food security and access to education.

Into to our design thinking process for social impact (30 minutes)
Mind-mapping our local causes: food security and access to education (60 mins)
Framing our design challenge exercise (30 minutes): Creating a creative brief and focus statements
When solving complex social challenges, we’ll see how issues are intertwined and how using different lenses will create opportunities for defining a focus and situation we can improve. Our format goal is to high energy and get everyone in the creative flow. We’ll have a presentation followed by brainstorming and working in small groups .
