Design thinking for solving urban challenges
Today, together with councilors from the Sofia Municipal Council and colleagues from the directorates for health, culture and education, we identified challenges in the fields of cultural-historical heritage, education and health in Sofia using the design thinking method. Experts from Innovation Starter took us through the process of identifying challenges, inventing ideas and testing.
We will leave prototyping to the young people, whom we will invite to participate in a Sofia innovation hackathon.
Sofia Municipality, through Sofia Development Association and the Fund for Innovations, in partnership with Innovation Starter and the Innovation Academy, will organize a Sofia innovation hackathon on 9 and 10 June.
The innovative solution to concrete urban problems by organizing competitions is part of the Fund for Innovations’ “Development of Philanthropy in the Local Community” project, supported by the Workshop for Civic Initiatives Foundation.
