Alongside our current commercial commissions at Rodd, Peter and I have been asked by the Design Council to support two national schemes as Design Ambassadors to Schools.
Peter's work is part of the Schools ‘Water Challenge’, an initiative that is exploring ways in which water consumption can be reduced, and mine, ‘Keeping Connected’, is helping to improve the way older adults connect to younger people, their community and the wider world by using service design.
Both challenges are aimed at Key Stage 3 students with members of the professional Design industry providing support and mentorship. The schemes are part of a national competition due to complete in July 2011.
You can follow my involvement on the Keeping Connected challenge here over the coming weeks.
