The project “What design can do” intends to promote the exchange and cooperation between five schools from five countries with different languages and cultures. Ten mixed teams worked together critically and constructively on the given topic. The project is formulated in a very open way and the idea is to explore the topic “What design can do – for society, culture, economy, education, gender or environment?” from as many as possible and different perspectives. It is left to the students to approach the topic from different aspects like society, culture, economy, education, gender or environment. Equally open are the potential outcomes. The topic addressed should be implemented in some form of media. This can mean a series of posters, a film, a series of T-shirts, a podcast, a book etc.
