WHAT IS DESIGN FOR CHANGE?

Design for Change (DFC) is a global movement that cultivates the ‘I Can’ mindset in every child. This ‘I Can’ spirit empowers children and gives them an opportunity to express their own ideas for a better world and put them into action. Design for Change was born out of the conviction that children are not helpless, that change is possible and belief that they can drive it. Through a simple design process of Feel-Imagine-Do-Share ( FIDS for KIDS ) children are designing solutions for some of the worlds greatest challenges! Ready to join the movement??
