CARDET, represented by Dr. Charalambos Vrasidas and Mr. Sotiris Themistokleous, delivered a presentation on “Design Thinking for Development and Social Justice”, at the “Arts and Social Justice Conference 2011 : The media Connection”. The ASJ Conference 2011 was organized by the Department of Communications in collaboration with the Mass Media and Communications Institute of the University of Nicosia and it took place between 20-23 October 2011 at the UNESCO Amphitheater of the University of Nicosia.

The presentation examined ways in which “design thinking” can be applied for development, education, and social justice. It also discussed examples and case studies of applying “design thinking” by engaging in a critical review of relevant projects applied by CARDET. Particular focus was given on the educational material developed in the context of the EuropeAid project “Raising Awareness on Development Cooperation”, leaded by CARDET.
