Aus "Schüler entdecken Design" wird "Entdecke Design"
Eine starke Bewegung braucht ein starkes Leitmotiv: Unter dem Motto "Entdecke Design" lädt unsere bundesweite Bildungs- und Kulturinitiative Kinder und Jugendliche ein, in praxisorientierten Workshop-Programmen die Welt des Designs für sich zu entdecken und in eigenen Arbeiten umzusetzen. Stärker ansprechen und fördern wollen wir künftig auch junge Erwachsene und Pädagogen im Rahmen spezieller Fort- und Weiterbildungen.
