Live session #36 | Navigating the Unknowns of a Design workshop

08/03/2023 @ 2:30 PM 4:00 PM CET

Title: Navigating the Unknowns of a Design workshop


  • Angela Koki, Designer at the Institute of Design and Innovation, SPACEAI, and Proportion Global
  • Moses Mwaniki, Design Strategist at the Institute of Design and Innovation, SPACEAI and Proportion Global


In this session, Angela and Moses will take us through their experience facilitating a design workshop for the Mombasa Plastics Prize Challenge. The Prize challenge aims to encourage aspiring entrepreneurs and leaders (ages 18-25) in Mombasa County to develop solutions that tackle the problem of plastic waste mismanagement within informal settlements. The first hackathon sought to divide the 60 finalists into teams and instil design thinking methodologies when tackling a problem. Several unknowns and challenges came up along the way. Angela and Moses will share with us how they navigated team formation, team dynamics, and their training sessions on HCD.

Challenge Works contracted Proportion Global to provide HCD support to the finalists of the Mombasa Plastics Prize Challenge.
