Designathon Works is an international social enterprise focused on spreading awareness about the importance of engaging children as co-designers of society. Our method highlights the natural ability of children to foster creative concepts for a better future - not only for themselves, but for the planet - by using technology to design solutions to our environmental challenges.
We use three pillars to empower and unleash creativity in more children: school programs, customized designathon workshops, and our annual Global Children's Designathon event.
Designathon Works operates under the name: Stichting (foundation) Designathon Works. The formal installation took place on March 3rd, 2014.
