Activista I CAN

Brief description:
Activista I CAN is a non-formal science workshop developed by Design for Change Spain (DFC) with the goal of making children and youngsters take the role of change agents in their own communities. Participants identify key actions within the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals using DFC methodology. The process followed during the workshop is inspired by design thinking and it is structured in five different stages which range from identifying a challenge to generating ideas, prototyping, taking steps towards action and communicating the results. This method is based on the principle of learning by doing and it encourages experimentation and reflection at each stage.
