  • Who: Ben Clarke, Daniela Lopez, Randy Cottin, Nikola Genev, Cun Li
  • When: 27 March 2017 - 30 March 2017
  • Where: Eindhoven, NL


The main goal was to create a social collaboration though Design and Innovation for Transformative Practises(version 10, Hummels, Trotto, Levy, Klooster and Alves lino &, 2017). To make this possible we came up with the idea of a 3 step path which includes Collaboration, Empathy and a Sense of Belonging to achieve a sense of community. We used primary schools and their students as a test case to emulate our idea in a real world situation.


Our project can be adapted to more than our test case of school kids, it can be used for any age, society or ethnicity

Beneficiaries & Stakeholders:

The citizens of each manicipality

Insights & Conclusions:

When people of multi-disciplinary backgrounds come together, something special can be created with little initial input from potential stakeholders/beneficiaries
