What is a design champion?

While the City of Design Academies aim to solve a real service problem, the biggest benefit from the academies, both to citizens and the council, is the design champions who will have learned the skills and techniques on how to better design services using design thinking.

The academies aim to build capacity for using service design methods in future projects by inviting 8-10 people to each academy to become ‘design champions’. The design champions will attend the workshop days to learn and understand the service design methods and techniques required to run future workshops in other academies or on a smaller scale as part of future projects.

By inviting up to 10 people to each academy, the council can quickly build up a core set of skills and expertise to call upon in future to help design services with the citizen at the centre.
