Design Thinking for Environmental Solutions


To unleash creative thinking, cewas uses the Design Thinking approach in stand-alone workshops or integrated into ideation processes and incubation programmes. We offer the training course for universities, NGOs or commercial clients. For example, in 2019, we organised an Environmental Design Thinking in Amman, Jordan. The 3-day course workshop integrated design thinking approaches with environmental sustainability and followed a participatory, cross-institutional and interdisciplinary approach. While outlining the programme, great emphasis has been laid on participants’ interaction: besides face-to-face lectures, group works and case studies, field visits to existing projects and role-plays reveal creativity and make participants think in a holistic way. The goal of design thinking workshops is to practice the application of design thinking methods and tools for selected environmental issues and activate a change in the development of solutions. The course empowered participants to conduct a creative, needs-based ideation process for environmental business ideas.
