Design-a-thon Works

Empowering children to design a better world, our mission is to unleash the creativity of 1 million children, enabling them to become changemakers for a better future. During a design-athon workshop, children learn to design, prototype and present their solutions to the Sustainable Development Goals.

Design-a-thon is located in the Netherlands and works through a network of partners in countries on all continents. The 5th annual global event in 2019 was hosted in 40 cities around the world. The 6th edition rqan from December 17th 2020 and to Jan 23rd and 24th 2021.
