How can design thinking contribute to the sustainable development of communities in need?

Sago Network, a volunteer team of designers and development practitioners, present an overview of Sago Studio 2011, an exciting community development project in Papua New Guinea to be driven by a team of students and guided by experienced professionals. The studio is founded upon the notion of capacity building and will collaborate with the remote PNG communities of Laukanu and Kelkel to design and build a series of carefully planned water and sanitation projects to address immediate community need. Set to take place over five weeks from December 2011 to January 2012 this unique 12 credit point masters-level studio will collide design and development theory with the realities of the field to explore the potential of design thinking for developing communities.
