The workshop is not for teaching design thinking. It is, rather, a conversation among designers, policy-makers, strategists and other kinds of decision makers. It aims to explore how design-thinking could be applied to deal with the complex human problems of the future. The exploration process is a long-term endeavour. We are not sure what shape it may take.
Therefore, we are aiming at a long term partnership among various participants.
However, it needs to be emphasized that Design-Thinking is a hands-on approach.
As it involves the idea of ‘doing’ in tandem with that of ‘knowing’, its full benefits can be realized only if we experience the act of designing. Therefore, this workshop also aims at collectively and creatively solving a selected set of problems.
