48 non-designers, 11 teams, 4 different schools, and one design brief. We gave these sixth-form students a creative challenge with one simple objective—to better a chosen social social situation through design thinking methodologies. We granted them the creative freedom to explore one of three topic: homelessness, public spaces and mental health. This was facilitated in partnership with Ba (Hons) Design Management & Cultures and the Creative Education Trust. Over a course of 4 months, these students were mentored through stages of vigourous research and design implementation, equipping them for challenges of the 21st century. Here thereof contains the design proposals by these young thinkers; a concise documentation of their work archived into a research publication. Selected works were then exhibited in London College of Communication as part of London Design Festival 2018 later in the year.
