On September 22th, the PLANET FRATERNITY team gathered around Kiran Bir Sethi on video. Kiran Bir Sethi is the initiator of the international DESIGN FOR CHANGE network present throughout the world.
In 2009, Kiran launched “Design for Change,” which uses a simple 4-step design educational framework: FIDS (Feel, Imagine, Do, Share) to cultivate the I CAN mindset in all children.
DFC is a global initiative that has allowed millions of children and young people around the world to express their ideas for a better world and implement their proposals.
To do this, they put into play the four basic skills:
• Critical thinking
• The creativity
• The collaboration
• The communication
The OIEC (International Organization of Catholic Education) through the I CAN project and Planet Fraternity promotes this methodology because it perfectly responds to the challenges launched by Pope Francis: “All educators are called to collaborate with their professionalism
and with the wealth of humanity. what to bring, to help young people to be the builders of a more united and peaceful world ”.
