What you will learn
You will learn the principles of design thinking and systemic design, methodologies that enable organisations to identify the core issues in a world becoming more complex, and offer meaningful solutions.
Seeing the bigger picture
Understanding the system from a human-centered point of view. Placing human needs at the center, and in relation to one another is a crucial skill of modern-day organisations.
Designing for connected experiences
Learning how to create memorable experiences for users, and interventions that can be implemented in the system are valuable skills for change makers.
Conceiving the solution space
Interventions in a system should be tested and iterated continuously, prototyping is an important part of this process and can make the difference between failure or success.
What you will do
Complex socio-technical issues are explored through a human-centered, systemic design lens.
Participants work in teams, Namahn designers guide the teams through a process of understanding, exploring and prototyping.
Each team uses a combination of UX, service design and systemic design principles to experiment in protected spaces. The teams often interact to bounce off and test ideas.
Each day, we feature a speaker that presents a far-off, inspiring topic.
