Themes we work on

DIGITAL ACTIVATION OF HEALTH & WELLBEING

Digital activation of health and wellbeing refers to the use of digital technologies, such as mobile apps, wearables, and online platforms, to promote and support healthy behaviors and lifestyles and spark dialogues between the people who use them.

COMPUTATIONAL FASHION DESIGN

Computational fashion design is the use of computer software and technology to create sustainable fashion products. By using these tools, designers can explore and experiment with a wide range of materials and design possibilities while minimizing waste and reducing the environmental impact of the fashion industry. Computational fashion design is an important step towards a more sustainable and eco-friendly fashion industry.

DIGITAL MONITORING FOR SUSTAINABILITY

Digital Monitoring for Sustainability involves using digital technologies to monitor and evaluate progress towards SDGs. Using a range of digital tools to collect, analyze and visualize data on sustainability indicators such as climate change, biodiversity, and social equity. By enabling real-time monitoring and reporting, we can support and enhance transparency and accountability in sustainability efforts.

DESIGNING REGENERATIVE CITIES

Regenerative city design focuses on creating sustainable systems that enable cities to thrive while also contributing to the health and wellbeing of the planet and its inhabitants. This involves integrating natural systems into urban design, promoting renewable energy sources, supporting local food systems, and fostering social connections and community engagement. By prioritising regenerative practices, cities can become more resilient, adaptable, and thriving for current and future generations.

Practical Information

When you decide to join forces with Digital Society School, we start off with a co-creation session where we explore the challenge your organisation faces. Together, we define the problem that will be at the core of the project work for a group of talented trainees from our Digital Transformation Intensive Programme. This will ensure that all expectations are aligned and maximise the value that we can provide. In general, per project, our trainees will dedicate more than 3,200 hours working in sprints on a challenge. While working in multidisciplinary teams, they will apply diverse design thinking methods to come up with impactful results.

 

To support our trainees in their project work, we have developed an extensive educational track that includes workshops on Digital Transformation Design, Design Thinking, User Research and Service Design among others. This ensures that each trainee is equipped with the right tools to be able to successfully complete the project. Being directly connected to the challenge you experience, this also creates additional opportunities for cross-pollination of ideas and knowledge throughout the whole organisation.

 

Digital Society School is a not-for-profit organisation, which means that our earnings go solely to cover our expenses for running educational programmes and the continuous improvement of the learning experiences we offer. This also applies to the investment of doing a project with us. Depending on your organisational needs, you can expect the investment to start from EUR 21,600.

We are looking for partners who understand that positive impact on society can go hand in hand with value creation for their own organisation. Professionals who are ready for digital, integral solutions for ‘people, planet and profit’. Are you up for it?
