We offer a 5-day practical, inspiring and engaging summer school in the context of Social Design. Product, service and system designers (from local and international agencies), social innovators, academic researchers, and multiple other experts from (non-)profit organizations and governmental institutions will guide you through this summer school within the context of innovation in social design. We will work on following building blocks:

  • Intercultural design
  • International design
  • Circular design
  • Bio design
  • Digital design
  • Fashion design

Social designers are looking for solutions to societal challenges, such as the environment, cultural issues and working with vulnerable target groups. During the summer school we will engage in following themes:

  2. Challenges in social design: co-designing innovative solutions
  3. Thematic sessions on international and intercultural design
