The Challenge

Inclusion is the Number 1 challenge of tomorrow. Increasing inequality reduces growth and leads to social and economic instability. Climate change creates risks for many of the worlds poorest. Population growth exacerbates present issues of access to basic services and income. We need to innovate to create opportunity for all.

Inclusive Innovation Factory

In design-thinking workshops of up to 10 participants, we work out how technology can drive inclusive innovation, and what is needed to realize solutions. Participants are carefully selected to bring together those actors who can make the change - and only those.

During ii2030

During ii2030

ii2030 draws inspiration from a hyper-focused and intensive service design process created by IXDS. This process, aided by mapping and storytelling, fosters the creation of technology-led solutions to address the SDGs. The methodology guides participants in their understanding of the challenges future users face. Through techniques that enhance their creativity, participants co-create new, holistic solutions that involve all needed stakeholders. The end-product of the workshop is a minimum viable prototype and a concrete roadmap to success.

After ii2030
