Hauptschule
Seminar / Seminar
in englischer Sprache

This seminar shows how and why policy-makers and senior officials or public managers engage in new design approaches to develop more citizen-centric policies and public services. Participants will learn about speculative, generative, formative and evaluative design, as well as their personal role in fulfilling the UN agenda for sustainable development and strengthening of democracy. Solution proposals to specific challenges, which have been identified in morning sessions, will be developed in teams.
