The Global Children’s DESIGN-A-THON 25th OCTOBER 2014


SUPPORT US TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN!

On October 25th 2014, from 10am to 6 pm (GMT), children in Amsterdam, Nairobi, Mumbai, Dusseldorf and Dublin will work in parallel to create designs for better cities, and build prototypes to present their ideas.


Our vision The vision of the Unexpect Foundation is a world where all children contribute to making a better world through creative and critical use of (new) technologies. We achieve this through teaching children to design and to critically use new technologies and through a bi-annual event: the Global Children’s Designathon.


THE DESIGN-A-THON


Better Futures by design

To get the world acquainted with a new perspective on children and their education we are running the Global Children’s Designathon. A day dedicated to celebrating what the world could be like when children start designing better futures using new technologies.
