OCAD U’s sLab partners with Barcelona’s Bau Design College to host Citizen Centred Innovation: Intensive Training Workshop

 

Tuesday, June 10, 2014 - 3:45pm

This September, sLab and Bau Design College will jointly host an exciting two-week international certificate course in Toronto and Barcelona. The course provides intensive, executive-level training on multidisciplinary methods and techniques used to address complex social problems. As the first in a series called “Citizen Centric Innovation,” this year’s workshops focus on urban food waste as an example of a complex social problem — with the idea being that methods and techniques learned to address this problem will be transferable to other complex social and environmental challenges.

Location: Toronto / Barcelona

Dates: September 14 to 26, 2014
