Community-powered design: Tackling real-world challenges together

October 28 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm


Most of the pressing challenges in the world are too manifold for a single branch of design to solve. Confronting high levels of complexity requires creating and managing multiple partnerships, thinking at an ecosystem level and bringing together those from a variety of backgrounds and points of view. Community-powered design and innovation does just that—reframing the notion of “community engagement and mobilization” for organizations by giving them a diverse outlook in tackling challenges and helps them transform into platform-businesses.

Join this workshop to see how this trans-disciplinary approach embraces complexity and harnesses a community-powered innovation process to generate positive, lasting results.


  1. Think about how to move your organizational structure away from a siloed establishment towards a community-powered platform—one that is more diverse, permeable and regenerative.
  2. Explore how community-powered innovation can create a space for tackling the wicked problems of the world.
  3. Grasp how the practice of radical collaboration and inclusive facilitation transforms groups of individuals into motivated and empowered teams.
