Join us for an interactive design thinking workshop focused on helping you understand complex social and environmental problems and create solutions to problems you care about.
This Solveathon workshop will use human-centered design principles and rapid ideation to help you generate solutions to real-life challenges. Over the course of the workshop, participants will undergo the following stages:
Meet your Team - get to know your team while finding common interests in a problem
Identify Stakeholders - list the diverse stakeholders whom are involved or impacted by the challenge
Understand the System - visualize the challenge within a larger context
Ideate – generate innovative ideas and solutions in groups
Design your Solution – further develop the most promising ideas and plan for next steps
Present – consolidate and present ideas to an audience of participants
Participants are eligible to receive $300 in micro-grant funding to further develop their ideas after participating in the workshop.
We welcome a diversity of backgrounds and experience levels. Everyone has their own passions and skills to bring to the table and can build on one another’s ideas. You don’t need to have an idea or be working on a project to participate in this workshop. This is a great opportunity for those who are just getting started. This will also be an opportunity for you to learn how to more effectively co-create and innovate in a virtual space. Come push boundaries with us, gain new insights, and have fun!
