We are very happy to inform you that Thessaloniki was one of the 40 cities around the world where Global children’s Designathon happened! Saturday, 16th of November 2019 was a really exciting, creative and playful day for our team! Global children’s Designathon Thessaloniki 2019 was held at the Labattoir Project in Thessaloniki.
The event aimed at developing social innovation through education, focusing on the issue of “Food and Climate Change”, which are key sustainable goals for supporting the development around the world. 23 children from 8 to 12 year old participated, where they were informed about the impact of our eating habits on the environment, and they examined possible solutions to redistribution of food.
Moreover, they used their imagination in order to design their own solutions, making prototypes using various recyclable materials, and also sensors, motors, and other electronic components. At the end of the day, the children presented their inventions to a group of experts and their parents, where excitement and creativity prevailed!
