Design for Change

Bernise Ang

"Contagious" is a good word.

This was the first line of a speech delivered by Kiran Bir Sethi from Ahmedabad, India, at a TED talk in Nov 2009. Her idea was simple: Show kids that "they can", and let them take local issues into their own hands - and make positive change in their community.

Her idea has since transformed into a phenomenon called Design for Change (DFC), a global initiative engaging more than 50,000 schools in over 30 countries. It targets kids aged 8-13 years, from any part of the world.

The challenge: Design solutions for problems that you encounter in your life, school, neighborhood or community, implement these solutions in a week, document your work - and submit it.

Syinc is a partner in the DFC country team in Singapore, and this is your call for submissions!
