WHAT IS DESIGN FOR CHANGE?

Design for Change (DFC) is a global movement that cultivates the I Can belief in every child. This I Can spirit empowers children and gives them an opportunity to express their own ideas for a better world and put them into action. Design for Change was born out of the conviction that children are not helpless, that change is possible and belief that they can drive it. Through a simple design process of Feel-Imagine-Do-Share ( FIDS for KIDS ) children are designing solutions for some of the worlds greatest challenges!

Our Solution

FIDS for kids

Powered by the principles of design thinking, Design for Change offers a simple 4 step framework FIDS (Feel-Imagine-Do-Share)- to unleash the I CAN superpower in every child.

Using this framework, children are encouraged to 'FEEL' (observe and identify any situation that bothers them), 'IMAGINE' (brainstorm a way to make it better), 'DO' (work in teams to implement their solution) and finally, 'SHARE' (their solution of change with the world) to inspire others to say, 'I CAN'!
