Thanks to generous support from the BIC Corporate Foundation, we are excited to announce that applications are open for the second cohort of the 2022 Design Thinking with Children Fellowship programme. The programme is part of Play Africa’s mission to create more child-friendly, safe and playful African cities through child-centred placemaking.
Through the Fellowship, Play Africa will equip participants with the practical skills and the resources to implement design thinking workshops with children ages 7-12 and beyond.
By the end of the training, Fellows will have access to all of the resources and be fully equipped to run Play Africa’s Design Thinking with Children workshops in their own communities.
This workshop is designed with educators and urban practitioners in mind, but can be adapted by anyone working with children and youth. We encourage professionals working in urban planning, community development, education and related sectors as well as parents who are passionate about empowering children to make their voices and ideas heard to transform their communities and cities to apply.
