Designathon Works has just released the excellent report: Global Voices of the Next Generation on Water.
The Global Children’s Designathon, that took place on November 11th 2017, is the backbone of the Global Voices of the Next Generation on Water Report. During this event more than 600 children aged 7 to 12 years, participated in 18 cities around the world, where they created solutions to this year’s big societal and environmental issue: WATER.
The Global Children’s Designathon provides a channel for two way inspiration: the children get to tackle the world’s biggest problems and adults can gain a unique view of what the next generation envisions around water issues. The solutions they came up with are amazing and informed by their context. This report shows that children care for our planet, are aware of water-related issues, believe these issues are pressing, and offer concrete solutions to solve them.
Clearwater’s Fabrication Lab at Saint Paul’s School was honored to be a host for the Global Children’s Designathon, and to contribute to the report. Please take time to read the report to see some of the amazing designs that the children created!
