DESIGN FUTURES, Erasmus+, September 2019 – September 2021

Design Futures is a European initiative, coordinated by TU/e, that wants to empower children to contribute to the design of a better future. We believe that we can support children’s imagination, self-esteem, and ability to contribute by letting them experience Design Thinking and Maker Education activities at a young age. Therefore, we aim to create materials that support teachers with implementing Design Thinking and Maker Education practices in their schools.

Design Futures is a project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union. The project’s partners are: TU/e, Designathon Works, PACO Design Collaborative, Stimmuli, All Grow, Aristotelio College of Thessaloniki.

From the TU/e side the project is supported by Professor Tilde Bekker and Professor Panos Markopoulos.
