Annual Report

Designathon Works is an international social enterprise focused on spreading awareness about the importance of engaging children as co-designers of a sustainable society. Our Designathon method highlights the natural ability of children to foster creative concepts for a better future for themselves and the planet by using technology.

To empower and unleash creativity in more children we use three pillars: school programs, tailormade designathons and our annual Global Children'sDesignathon.

Designathon Works operates under the name: Stichting (foundation) Designathon Works.
The formal installation took place on March 3rd, 2014.
