Design Thinking – Young Changemakers Community #11

How can we create things and services valuable to people? Get an intro to all aspects of Design Thinking through a high paced and hands-on workshop. This is the start of your empathic design journey.

Design thinking experience
So what is Design Thinking? This evening will be a hands-on experience – learn by doing! You will create something valuable through empathizing with one another. Design Thinking is focused on people and not on perfection. You will learn to understand each other better, to build something from zero, and test whether you have met the need of another person. Go for that bold idea! Build that impossible thing! Lose the fear to share!
This workshop is open to anyone who is relatively new to the subject and looking for inspiration. All you have to do is register and show up. We’ll take it from there.

“Design thinking is a human-centered approach to innovation that draws from the designer’s toolkit to integrate the needs of people, the possibilities of technology, and the requirements for business success.” Tim Brown CEO OF IDEO.

What’s in it for YOU?
You will explore new ways of thinking by discovering what people really need. It allows people who aren’t trained to be a designer to use creative tools to address a vast range of challenges.

Van burgerparticipatie, naar verbinding en realisatie

Antje Tilstra, programma coördinator sociaal ondernemen bij Starters4Communities en één van de projectleiders van Wijkkunde, vertelt hoe zij verbinding leggen tussen verschillende partijen: “Wat voor vragen spelen er nu en waar loop je tegenaan? – Daar zijn wij bij Wijkkunde vaak benieuwd naar. In de maandelijkse gesprekken kunnen bewoners hun hulpvraag met ons delen. Gelijk aan het einde van het gesprek kunnen wij ze naar de juiste personen doorverwijzen binnen ons netwerk. Zo zijn wij een verbindende partij. Soms maken we gebruik van sociaal kapitaal en nodigen we bij de gesprekken de juiste mensen uit die veel ervaring hebben met een bepaald onderwerp. Zo wordt er expertise en ervaringen uitgewisseld. Aan het einde wordt er een verslag met actiepunten opgesteld, zodat zij direct verder kunnen”.
