The SDS renews its partnerships annually

You will be trained as a designer in sustainable innovation

And will bring your talents to contribute to the creativity within multidisciplinary teams.

You will learn to master various creative techniques, in particular “design thinking,” as it is promoted and taught at the University of Stanford and used with success by the renown design agency IDEO in Palo Alto, California.

A designer thinks with a pencil in his/her hand

Drawing, a universal language, is the first tool of a designer

For a designer, drawing is: translating the imaginary, establishing a dialog with multidisciplinary teams, giving life and form to objects, as well as services, systems and business models…with a responsible attitude towards mankind, the environment, the economy and various cultures worldwide.
