Integral Perspectives:

Cyber Wellness

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

In the first of the Integral Perspectives series, we will explore the issue of cyber wellness for youths.

For 3½ days, learn how to see things differently through design thinking (DT) blended with organisation development (OD) principles. By integrating multiple diverse views and frameworks, we aim to bring a more complete understanding of ourselves and the world around us. This allows us to discover our creative capacities to bring about more effective change in our worlds.

Come if you are

  • Just starting out with Design Thinking.
  • Interested in Social Innovation.
  • Curious about cyber wellness as a complex issue.
  • Looking to add new frameworks to your existing design thinking toolkit.
  • Wanting to understand what gets in the way of behavioural change.

About this workshop

Dates: 30 Sep, 2-4 Oct 2019

You’ll be guided through an immersive design thinking process of “Discover-Define-Design-Deliver”, on a real world challenge to help youths find better cyber wellness support. Coupled with key organisation development frameworks, learn how to better empathise with diverse stakeholders and overcome obstacles that get in the way of implementing effective solutions. Working in teams, you will practice gathering data from communities, receive feedback from experienced practitioners and collaborate with a socially engaged, interdisciplinary cohort. Leave your comfort zone and tackle a complex issue head on!

  • Deepen your understanding of cyber wellness issues that youths face.
