Empowering children to design a better world

 

Designathon Works envisions a world in which all children are engaged in designing a better world for themselves and the planet.

Our goal is to equip children with a changemaking attitude and to teach society to see children as co-designers of a better world.

We achieve this by developing educational programs for schools, organisations and through our annual Global Children's Designathon.
