Challenge for Change: Design Thinking Bootcamp in Egypt.
Empowering Educators in Egypt through Design Thinking
Presentation on Empathy
I worked with Challenge4Change, an Egypt based organization created to bring design thinking methodologies into the Egyptian school system. While collaborating with a group of design thinking leaders and facilitators, we designed and led an immersive bootcamp for Egyptian educators (teachers and administrators) to empower students to make a greater impact in their communities through project-based learning, experimentation, and prototyping.
How do we empower Egyptian youth to make an impact in their local communities through experiential and project-based learning?
We designed a week-long bootcamp for educators across Egypt, where we shared with them the design thinking methodology as a framework for creating change in their local communities.
There are currently more than 100 Egyptian students who are applying the design thinking methodology to solve complex local challenges in the areas of: environmentalism, trash management, recycling, water systems, and more.
