Facilitating YSI Design For Change Workshop
This workshop provides primary level educators with the information and tools they need to guide a team of children through YSI's Design for Change Programme. Participants learn about YSI’s Model of Social Innovation Learning as well as the international FIDS Framework developed by Design for Change and used by its partner organisations around the world to engage children in action-based innovation projects for social change. Participants will explore the resources made available by YSI to support the implementation of this programme and will feel confident using a range of innovative tools, techniques and learning methodologies to support young people to complete a project on an issue they care about.
