Tackling a Social Issue with St Louis Secondary School and St Macartans College

Tackling a Social Issue with St Louis Secondary...

This course will work with two groups from St Louis Secondary School and St Macartans College to identify and resolve a social challenge in County Monaghan with reference to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We will start by exploring the challenges in the local area, using the design thinking steps to walk us through the user journey. 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.
 Innovating Communities courses are led by Design Thinking experts and community volunteer 'co-trainers' to help training teams tackle projects like these. Group sessions will take place every Tuesday afternoon between 2 pm - 3.45 pm.

Drogheda Community Fridge

Drogheda Community Fridge

The idea of 'A Community Fridge in Drogheda Town' has been put forward by a community member and is an excellent idea if there are groups or individuals who would like to work out how it could get going. The idea suggests "people can help themselves for free. Individuals and businesses can donate surplus food to the fridge to tackle the huge issue of food waste. Volunteers help run the scheme with the help of Co Louth council." Through Innovating Communities workshops, a team could use Design Thinking to work out a plan and engage support for making this project a reality. If you're interested in being involved in these sessions or want to know more, please register your interest now.
