Spark the Change:
From Idea to Action

As university students, we are constantly taking in new information and knowledge, yet we are rarely given the chance to apply it by putting it into practice. Building upon the RISE Together for Change workshop, we designed a workshop for university students called “Spark the Change: From Idea to Action.” We conducted this workshop in June and July, 2022, for students at Sophia University and Reitaku University.

Through our 90-minute workshops, participants were able to identify and define a problem, find opportunities for change, identify the skills and resources they can use to solve the problem, brainstorm solutions, test their solutions by creating prototypes, and share their inspiring ideas at the end with everyone else. They learned to utilize design thinking mindsets and methods, and to apply their creativity and individual knowledge towards collectively solving challenges they face in their university lives.
