Event Description

About the course:

What could government learn from design or design thinking? How do you empathize with the civilians you are working for? What are today’s challenges working as a policy maker or civil servant? All questions we will be working on during the Design Thinking in Policy workshop. We will look at the local and global context to see opportunities and we together in Co-design design strategies to exploit these opportunities. We will see what are important values in current times to connect them to more relevant solutions in todays society. And which (small) step could you make using Design Thinking to change the way you work as a policy maker a little bit. Jeroen will share his experience of co-design in a governmental setting in the Netherlands.

Facilitador: Jeroen Spoelstra. I am a passionate designer focusing on bringing people forward using human centered design. You could call what I do Social Design, but nowadays there are hundreds of different design names. So for me I am a designer and try to be humble to the world. I like solving issues and look for opportunities together with other people in co-design. Jeroen has run projects such as AgrimeetsDesign- The Happy Harvest project for the Dutch ministry of Economical Affairs ,a food design project with the University of Applied Siences in Amsterdam and he did several co-design projects with local and regional governments in the Netherlands. Previously he worked for several Universities and has been co-founder of AmIaDesigner.
