Presentation of SDGs Design School in Collaboration with Fukusho High School at Kyushu SDGs Design Network Conference
The SDGs Design School is part of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Design Unit, Kyushu University. Formed in 2019, using design education as a platform, the SDGs Design School aims to create greater awareness in the general public on the importance of the SDGs. We hope to nurture people who will take actions and contribute to making the society and the world a better place to live. This project also aims to develop new educational approaches and content to nurture our future generation with the ability to respond to diverse needs and changes in society.
Under the umbrella of SDGs Design School Program, the outcomes from the collaboration with Fukusho High School in Fukuoka City were presented at the Kyushu SDGs Design Network Conference.

Focusing on two major SDGs themes, “Climatic Change” and “Garbage Problems”, the high school students had the opportunity to present their ideas on how the goals within these two major themes may be achieved. Students not only shared about their interesting ideas, but they also shared about their experience during the group discussion process and the design thinking-based lessons that they have experienced for the first time.
The most significant outcome of this collaboration was that the high school students realized that they can all do something for SDGs.
