What a privilege to see the depth of design thinking these students have applied to some really complex challenges, and well done to the RSA for enabling them to showcase their ideas in this way.

It is wonderful to know that through this brief, students are broadening their worldview and realising that design isnt just for commercial use but can be used to impact the greater good!
