What is a Design Sprint and how can I participate?

A design sprint is a unique process for tackling big questions in new, innovative, and transformative ways. It is a process that helps us understand a problem, sketch solutions, make decisions, prototype, and receive feedback in a short amount of time.

Comprised of small multidisciplinary teams, groups will work together over the course of two weeks (virtual evening meetings and independent group work) to create the architecture of a digital hub for WEAll. Prototypes will serve to inspire the strategy and design of the final website to be utilized by global leaders, academics, organizers, activists, and other change makers looking for practical solutions in their local environments.

Groups (3-4 in each) and individuals are encouraged to apply. Individuals will be assigned a multidisciplinary group comprised of participants with varying backgrounds.
