Design Thinking is a people-centered approach to innovation that aims to create creative ideas and business models by focusing on people's needs, questioning familiar approaches and finding new ways to solve current challenges. In this workshop, you will learn the systematic approach to complex problems and act out the iterative process of design thinking. We intend to use this problem-solving technique and see what solutions you come up with for the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
