Design thinking is a process that helps to find solutions to everyday problems. It involves a few stages: empathise, define, ideate, prototype, test. In this session we will use Design Thinking to allow participants to explore solutions to issues identified by the SDGs. Participants will be working in groups to brain storm solutions, testing prototype and demonstrate their work to others.
Circular Economy is an alternative to the traditional linear model in which products are made, used and disposed of. In contrast, the Circular Economy model aims to recognise value and eliminate waste by maintaining products, using them for longer, and using waste from one product to maintain another.
This is a fun, engaging talk to introduce circular principles using hands-on exercises and real world examples to discuss the relationship between circular economy and the SDGs.
The SDGs can be used as a framework and tool to support students develop their research, critical thinking, problem-solving, systems thinking, self-awareness, and communication skills. Students need these 21st-century skills to be better equipped to take action and make a change. Teaching and exploring SDGs can also support students in finding their identity and purpose.
Teaching SDGs promotes creative and innovative practices in school curricula and pedagogy through project-based learning approaches and other engaging education tools. Teaching SDGs bridges subject divides – it is not simply an interdisciplinary theme, but a topic that requires us all to wear different hats and to appreciate those that wear other hats more comfortably than we do.
