About the Course


Our updated brief for this Innovating Communities course is: "To create a multi-purpose town centre community space, with long-term strategy and community ownership."

During the course, we will maximise and harness this project's potential by training participants in Design Thinking, which is a creative problem solving process, and bringing likeminded people together to examine the challenge for a Community Space in Ballybay, and to work together to come up with solutions.

New challengers are welcome to join at any point, request to join and the Trainer will get in touch to make sure you are up to speed.

Innovating Communities courses are led by Design Thinking experts and community volunteer 'co-trainers' to help training teams tackle projects like these.

Our Design Thinking training teaches valuable skills that can be used to create people-centred, innovative plans in response to challenges or opportunities like the one above. You will also have access to 1-on-1 mentoring from your trainer and co-trainer. Co-trainers are volunteers from your county with knowledge and/or experience in community action.

The schedule will be determined once an interested Team have registered their interest and are ready to begin. The Course length can vary between 21 and 42 hours of training based on the availability of the Team and the weight of the Challenge. You and your Team will be expected to commit to weekly training sessions, typically 2 hours in length. The team will also conduct community research and outreach during various stages of the course, between sessions.
