The Challenge

The UNDP Thailand office has been mapping the gaps and opportunities in the social innovation ecosystem in the country for 2 years now- meeting with various cross sector stakeholders. They wanted to ensure what when they began to build a new social innovation facility to support the community- it would be in-line with the perceived needs of that community.  The UNDP team trusted the D/O team to design and facilitate a ‘Meeting of the Minds’ : A  Design Day with 50 + organizations interested and working in social innovation in hopes of uncovering  and growing opportunities. The 8 hour workshop did just that while also creating the conditions for the whole group to build meaningful connections through rich dialogue. 8 early stage prototypes were also used as a starting point after only one day of walking through the design process.

The Data.

  • 92% of ranked the workshop has highly engaging
  • 92% felt the ability of the facilitators was high quality
  • 80% felt like the proposed solutions that came from the design groups had  potential impact and were innovative. 
  • Over 50% said they would be taking back skills they learned from the workshop to their teams and community afterwards.

"the facilitators were great and our team had positive and intense discussions from all angles." 

"I really loved the way the facilitators built the environment and gathered everyone to engage."
