DESIGN FOR CHANGE is the largest global movement designed to give children an opportunity to express their own ideas for a better world and put them into action. Children and adults learn through the Design for Change Challenge that “I Can” are the two most powerful words a person can believe. Children who have discovered this are changing their world. This year, Design for Change reaches 34 countries and over 300,000 schools inspiring hundreds of thousands of children, their teachers and parents, to celebrate the fact change is possible and that they can lead that change! The challenge asks students to do four very simple things: Feel, Imagine, Do and Share. Children are dreaming up and leading brilliant ideas all over the world, from challenging age-old superstitions in rural communities, to earning their own money to finance school computers to solving the problem of heavy school bags – children are proving that they have what it takes to be able to ‘design’ a future that is desired.

In May 2015 Design for Change Germany presented the first European Partner Meeting in Dresden! Representatives from Spain, Israel, Lithuania, Netherlands, Germany and India presented their work. We shared our experiences and knowledge during this two days of “European Partner Meet” and had a wonderful time together.
Every year “Design for Change” brings together global change makers under one roof at the “Be the Change Celebration. ” This year in the beginning of October 2014, students, educators and designers from 24 countries met in Ahmedabad, India. We shared our projects, experiences and knowledge during the three days of “Global Partner Meet” where country heads of “Design for Change” collaborated together to take the idea forward.
