The group has the goal of bringing Design Thiking to every one. We will organize open workshops and events to either learn the methodology or apply it in any particular field. We want many new collaborative projects being born out of this group.
Because Design Thinking is human centered, we will talk and observe more than anything to empathize with the people to understand them better, we want to think out of the box to find unexpected solutions to everyday problems, we want to be positive keeping away all the bad mentality and news, we will be optimistic whenwe fail because is that part of understanding the problem, we will try again but quickly and cheaply through prototyping. This group is specially created for people from different fields not only designers, we envision multi-disciplinary groups to approach the projects with a broader vision, teamwork is the key. And last but not least, we will reinforce our self confidence, everyone is creative, we just have to work harder on it.
Please, we want everyone to feel free to propose activities of any kind. So, please feel free to share your thoughts.
Who knows what we'll come up with!? Let's get started.
