Do you and your students want to make a difference in your community? Join us for a session about using design and making to address local issues of global importance. Drawing upon the processes and practices used in the Learning Studios and MY World 360º programs, participants will learn about the UN Sustainable Development goals, pick an issue they care about, and create a path for designing something that takes positive action on that issue in their community. Participants will leave the session with resources to facilitate purposeful making and design with their students.
