Design thinking workshop

Last weekend students from the Wellington Loop schools had a chance to help solve problems facing Wellington’s environment. The special three-day Design Thinking Workshop was organised by Wellington City Council with support from Massey University.

The workshop saw around 20 design-savvy students join small interdisciplinary teams to create design concepts which will educate the public about our stormwater system and help prevent its contamination. This is a major problem for local ecosystems including our harbour.

The students worked side-by-side with professional designers to develop their concepts before pitching them to a panel of creative, business, and political stakeholders.
