NDW at University of Nairobi
On 17th & 18th November, NDW will facilitate workshops at the University of Nairobi’s Architecture and Design Department (ADD) on Design and the Public Sector and Human Centered Design.
DESIGN AND THE PUBLIC SECTOR WORKSHOPS
The key focus of this workshop is to show how design and the principles of design thinking have a tremendous impact on the public sector. This workshop aims to show that design is a great tool to be employed by African governments to solve the continental challenges.
A speaker panel consisting of experts from various disciplines under the NDW themes will hold interactive discussions on key issues in the public sector and the role of design and design thinking within public institutions.
