Design for Change
Young Social Innovators is the Ireland Country Champion of Design for Change International since the 'Be the Change' Global Conference in Taiwan in 2018. We are pleased to work with some extremely committed Country Champions from over 70 countries worldwide.
Design for Change provides a super introduction to social innovation for primary level students in particular, empowering them to make a difference to the world around them while building entrepreneurial skills.
Design for Change International was set up by the inspirational Kiran Sethi from her school Riverside, in Ahmedabad in Western India.
Students from Ireland join thousands of young people globally who are working to build a more fair and caring world.
As with all YSI programmes, the experience of the child and educator is important as well as the values and reflective learning which are integral to social innovation and change-making.
We have wonderful new resources coming for the autumn 2021 for Primary Schools to try out with your 5th or 6th classes who want to take part. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
