We offer a 5-day practical, inspiring and engaging summer school in the context of Social Design.
Product, service and system designers (from local and international agencies), social innovators, academic researchers, and multiple other experts from (non-)profit organizations and governmental institutions will guide you through this summer school within the context of innovation in social design.
