Design Thinking Academy
A week-long training course in Albenga, Italy served as an introduction to the topic of Design Thinking. Creative, iterative and innovative - that would be my description of the process our team went through during the first week of October.
Process consists of five stages: Empathize, Define, Ideate, Prototype, Test. Each one became a unique challenge to five people from different walks of life, countries and experience.
We picked the topic of Promoting Green Travel and came up with a solution improving the ecological experience while traveling and exploring any city or destination.
Our solution would contribute to raising awareness, creating impact for local communities and helping to create a more sustainable lifestyle.
Hence, the key action topics of Erasmus+ program for upcoming years were merged within this vision: environmental protection and fight against climate change and digital transformation as well as civic engagement.
