THEMES
The Design Thinking Method
The Design Thinking methodology helps all participants find their way to tackle challenges that may confront them or obstruct the progress of their projects. It includes several iterative stages: Understand, Observe, Synthesize, Ideate, Prototype, and Test. These stages encourage creativity, collaboration, and experimentation to arrive at effective and user-centric solutions to complex problems.

This method is used widely across various industries, from product design to business strategy, and it has gained popularity as a versatile framework for innovation and problem-solving.
Collaboration & Networking
The entirety of the event will be marked by the collaboration of a diverse array of stakeholders united by their common interest in social innovation and positive change. There will be the opportunity to forge lasting partnerships and participate in expanding networks as our participants represent varied nationalities and backgrounds, spanning academia and the corporate sphere.
