Postcard SS-TYO 2020

Transformation. It’s not just a trendy buzzword; it’s the result of a growth mindset and a capacity for lifelong learning. At CIID, transformation is at the core of our participants’ experiences.

Join us this February in Tokyo and be the catalyst for creating the change you seek in your own life and career.

This is the premise of CIID Summer School: Give people with varying levels of design expertise the tools and skills needed to prototype new ideas for a fast-changing world. Our curated workshops on life-centred design and innovation, led by world-renowned faculty, focus on making impact toward the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Hands-on learning and collaboration are central to the curriculum. Workshops are taught by professionals who practice their craft daily. Participants come from all around the world and from all walks of life—chefs and bankers, students and pharmacists—to learn everything from life-centred research to how to control objects using Arduino.

At the end of the programme, participants head home with much more than increased insight into user needs or the knowledge of how to prototype a new service. They come back with a deeper understanding of how to work differently—the ability to make a difference.

“There were things I learned that changed my career and my life,” says one recent participant. “Had I not joined CIID Summer School, it would not have been possible.”
