Welcome on board of the Global Children's Designathon 2019!

You are now part of a global community of like-minded organizations around the world, which believes in the power of children's creativity and their ability to contribute to design a better world!
As a GCD host, you not only help to empower and unleash children’s creativity and to spread awareness about the importance to engage children to co-design society locally, but also you help to spread those ideas globally.


Hosting any successful event requires hard work and passion. We believe you have the creativity and drive needed to bring GCD experience to your community. But know that hosting a GCD event isn't a solo adventure: you've joined a vibrant community that's ready and willing to guide you every step of the way.


This page provides tools and resources to help you organize a GCD event that reflects the creativity, spirit and ingenuity of our community. We've divided it into 22 sections. Sections include general information about us and our method, our top GCD Rules to Live By, a timeline, and different chunks of content related to a specific facet of your event, like Sponsorship & Finance, Branding & Marcom or Inviting Children & Making a Selection. Each section includes guiding principles and best practices, as well as links to files and inspirational and relevant content. Hyperlinks are embedded throughout to link you to resources beyond it.

We wish you and your team good luck with the preparations and lots of learning and making pleasure!

Anne, Emer & Ina
