Help Design 4 Impact Present at SXSW EDU!


Design 4 Impact  is a student-led startup based at Avenues: The World School. Our mission is to bring design thinking, social innovation, and real-world problem solving to K-12 education so that all students are empowered to be change makers in their communities. See our website  and sign up for our newsletter for more information on past projects.

Last November, we were selected to present at SXSW out of a record-breaking 1,700+ proposals. At SXSW, we will unveil our online curriculum through an 1.5 hour interactive workshop and possibly have a booth in the main presentation area. Your donations will be crucial in helping us pay for plane tickets and lodging.

We are teenagers, and design thinking has completely changed our lives. Practicing design techniques allows us to create effective solutions to issues such as educational inequality, hunger, and climate change. Through design challenges, we have seen students learn how to empathize with their user, develop creative solutions, and become stronger speakers and leaders that are unafraid to fail. We believe that these skills are crucial for the success of our  generation who will be the future change makers of our world.

SXSW EDU is a unique opportunity for D4i to make educators from around the world aware of the importance of design thinking in their classroom and introduce them to our free and accessible online resources.

Please support our trip, and we promise to update you on our progress and the success of our SXSW EDU trip!
