About this event

Join us for this hands-on and interactive workshop in which you will discover the value of embracing a design attitude to planning your future. You will have the opportunity to apply the principles of design thinking to your own life and career. In doing that you leave behind entrenched thought patterns and create space to develop your individual ideas of a life that is both, meaningful and fulfilling to you. We will leverage creative approaches and critical mindsets of the design thinking process. In particular, we will use some of the tools proposed by Bill Burnett and Dave Evans in their book Design Your Life, to help you create your inner compass.

We believe that the skills and knowledge you will gain from this workshop will be useful, no matter where you are in your life and career. It is also a great opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals and expand your network.

This workshop is hosted by CEBRA, a student-led initiative from the Masters in Impact Entrepreneurship and Innovation in collaboration with the DESIS Lab (Design for Social Innovation and Sustainability). CEBRA was founded last year with the mission to accelerate systems change from within through responsible leadership education.

We look forward to seeing you at this first pilot workshop!
