These approaches facilitate the convergence of complementary skills and mindsets among stakeholders, stimulate out-of-the-box thinking, and prototyping in order to propose the best responses to societal and design challenges.
He is also deeply engaged in formal and non-formal education, running regular workshops for students and professionals on a wide range of issues around sustainability, social innovation, circular business models, and design thinking to name a few. He has also co-developed and delivers a Master’s programme in Design for Social Innovation at the Saint Luc Arts College in Brussels.
