Workshop 1

 “Planting seeds of design in local, organic agriculture”, Zurich, April 2016

The first “Design with Social Impact” Workshop named “Planting seeds of design in local, organic agriculture” took place in Zurich, Switzerland. Students from The School of the Arts and Design (StAD) at the University of Nairobi in Kenya and from Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) worked together on developing innovative and user-centred solutions to local organic farmers using participative methods and by applying a social design approach. The outcomes of the 4-week interdisciplinary workshop were not only physical and systematic solutions for organic foods, but also strategies on where and how design can be a tool for change.
