We encourage participants to use design thinking in their action projects. Your action project can be done with one of TribesforGOOD partners, for a community, or a project of your choice. You can choose from digital literacy to creating storyboards, shooting material, editing videos to content writing, research projects or even a business pitch. The projects should be human centered, meaning they start with the people you’re designing for and ends with new solutions that are tailor made to suit their needs. Throughout the action project, you will be guided by an experienced professional or a mentor, who will help you break down your project into sizable parts.
