Students and faculty from the International School of Helsinki, in collaboration with Tngl Studio, will lead the workshop 'Project Belong: Students as Architects of an Inclusive School' on October 30th during Helsinki Education Week. Participants will have the opportunity to explore ways in which their school can promote a sense of belonging for everyone.
What happens when a design thinker and school leadership collaborate with students to foster belonging? You uncover opportunities for change while creating a roadmap for student-initiated action. This approach delves into the ways in which school-wide design thinking places a high value on students' perspectives and equips them with the necessary tools to drive change.
