CHANGEmaker program

 Our program is based on real cases, practice and building experience.

CHANGEmaker program

The main idea of the program is to prepare young people (<30) to be changemakers, designers and leaders in the regenerated areas.

Our program is based on real cases, practice and building experience. During 12 months of intensive, educational and practical workshops, we will design and implement three services supporting the urban renewal by social inclusion.

 You will learn 

  • What are Service Design Methodology and social inclusion

  • How to design and implement the social project

  • How to make your solution more sustainable

  • How to work in an interdisciplinary and international group

  • How to engage local society in the regeneration process

We organized an international conference and service design workshop “Co-design your P(a)lace” in 2018.

The event became a prototype for the CHANGEmaker program. If you are interested in last year's edition, click the link https://www.codesignyourpalace.com/ 

 
 
Creation and Implementation
of Social Services

01.

 We focus on real needs 

That is why we decided to answer the challenge of selected regeneration places which need our support! We will be working with real people, in real places, on real problems, and with real managers or leaders who are responsible for the particular regeneration processes. Each group will implement one solution in Copenhagen, London and Sieminawice Śląskie.

02.

 Service design doing 

Based on Service Design Methodology you will create and implement solutions designed by people, with people and for people!

03.

 Learning by doing 

We strongly believe that the best practice is learning by doing – you will certainly not miss this in our program!

04.

 Building your real experience 

You will build your experience by implementing solution that supports regeneration process. Thanks to that you will enrich not only your portfolio, but also your knowledge, insight and community.
