Join this session to learn with Play Africa how to make use of the design thinking process in placemaking with and for children to create more playful African cities
At Play Africa we believe children are able to participate meaningfully in placemaking and they have the power to be inventors, makers, designers and creators themselves.
Play Africa is creating an open-source “toolkit,” which will support local adaptation and implementation of Play Africa’s Our Ideal World curriculum. Our Ideal World is a flexible, adaptable education workshop designed by Play Africa for children between the ages of 7 and 12 that teaches creative problem-solving. Play Africa’s customised curriculum uses an adaptation of the “Design Thinking” process used by the Stanford d.school to teach children to understand social challenges, and how to generate, prototype and test possible solutions that can be shared more widely.
Join us for a training in our unique child-focused approach to design thinking and placemaking with and for children.
