Design Emergency is a program that introduces students of all ages to design, and design thinking skills. The program helps students understand the way designers work and equips them with the same tools to help them improve the lives of their family, school and wider community.

The program provides opportunities to work with designers and for students to engage with challenges that are relevant and exciting to them.
