We were delighted to welcome and host the Design for Change Project partners in our office recently. We had a great partner meeting and look forward to working on the resources for the project. The team also got to explore parts of Leitrim and looked at some of the social changes happening in the community.
Jessica from Le LABA gave an insightful presentation into the project at the #momentumat20 event. The audience were invited to get involved and share the project within their communities.
Design For Change aims to train Adult Educators, Social Change Actors, Policy Stakeholders, and other stakeholders involved in social change to use Design Thinking principles as a standard when deciding on priority issues, determining who is affected by community problems and how, determining what solutions are possible and how they affect beneficiaries, developing ideas, and implementing projects.
This method will help to make better use of resources and financing, as well as educate staff, members, and activists in local governments, NGOs, development agencies, and organisations, improving the position of community changemakers and civil society to address major community concerns.
