Design for Change for Educators
How to Get Started with Design for Change
Join the movement of educators who are creating experiences for their students to lead change.
Through an online platform, you can teach students how to build awareness around a social cause and design solutions for change.
TEACH SOCIAL ISSUES
A growing library of audio and visual podcasts with supporting materials, designed to help teachers open up conversations about big issues with their students. The podcasts further help students learn about a variety of issues connected to the UN Global Goals, building their empathy and motivation to take action.
TAKE ACTION IN THE CLASSROOM
A space for teachers and students to work towards solving a pressing issue in the community using our signature design thinking framework and resources - online, in the classroom, or beyond!

The Global Connection
Over the last 10 years, Design for Change has hosted multiple global celebrations, bringing together student changemakers from over 70+ countries, to share their projects for a better world!
These celebrations have historically been a time for students to gather and build cross cultural connections and friendships, helping them realize the power of their collective action!
This global conference is made for those who complete a change-project with Design for Change and are looking to meet and inspire other changemakers just like them. Our worldwide network offers projects exposure and support for the work students have achieved.
