Event description

Description

If you’d like to sharpen your human-centred design research skills while learning about how a social enterprise operates, then this workshop is for you!

STREAT and MAKE have partnered to bring you a new way to learn while delivering social impact.

Deepen your human-centred design research skills
Human-centred design is a core element of many successful businesses. It combines critical thinking and creativity to solve problems and is all about building a deep empathy with the people we’re designing for. Through human-centred design we gain insights about people and their context to ensure we’re designing the right thing and solving the right problems. In this one-day workshop we’ll provide a combination of theory and hands-on practice in setting up and conducting human-centred design research activities. We’ll also provide a framework to synthesise research findings into insights and ideas that are meaningful and actionable.

Go behind the scenes and help with our Planet Plan while you learn
What makes this workshop special is we’ll take you on a tour behind the scenes of our Flagship premises at STREAT (including a cafe, bakery, roastery and daily catering operations). We’ll share with you how STREAT helps young people who need a hand and how as a social enterprise we’re working on lightening our environmental impact while increasing our social impact.

Finally, we’ll share our Planet Plan with you and together, we’ll work on one of our Planet Plan initiatives as part of our workshop, conducting research with our customers and/or staff members.
