As part of the ATÖLYE collaborator network Mischief Makers joined IDEO, Palmwood and DSIL to facilitate this interactive and engaging learning experience. We guided the participants through their transformational journey by letting them explore and learn the language, tools, processes and exercises they need to understand, imagine, and co-create meaningful solutions together with the people of their nation.
