Design for Change is a global movement of young people who are changing the world!
Design Thinking is a process of creating new and innovative ideas to solve a problem. Design for Change takes young people through 4 stages:
Young people observe and list the issues in their community that bother them.
They interact with folks in their community to identify points of intervention and solutions.
They develop and implement an action plan, keeping in mind resources, budget and time.
They share their story of change and inspire others to get involved or do their own project.
Working with Design for Change is easy. We offer everything from free activities to comprehensive program management.
Every year, teams submit their projects in video form to be judged by a panel of experts. The winning team is awarded an all expenses trip to the The DFC Global Conference that brings together teams from across the world to share and celebrate their projects, and most importantly, inspire others!
This two day event is filled with presenters, interactive workshops, music, fun and games! It is a life changing experience for everybody.
