Global Design Thinking Week, Potsdam, Germany

“Designing for Global Impact” | 12th – 18th March, 2020

The Global Design Thinking Week (GDTW) is the introductory Design Thinking study program designed by the HPI School of Design Thinking.

This GDTW workshop focuses on the first stages of the Design Thinking process, the so-called creative reframing where we aim to gain a better understanding of a given problem context by design-led research and inspirations from other sources. We are focusing on empathy as a key principle: to better understand users’ in their context and to explore their (future) latent needs, desires and wishes. Potential fields of opportunity are identified and described from a human-centered perspective. Additionally, the teams are developing and building new ideas and solutions through empathy prototyping.

Target group: students
