“Today we have the most important design brief to develop and execute in the history of mankind – to design a future world that’s conducive to life and wellbeing, where people and the planet not only survive but also thrive for 10 000 generations and more, in the same way, that nature designs. We believe this is the most powerful and impactful legacy worth aspiring to.” – Suné Stassen, CEO of ODA
Open Design Afrika (ODA) is driven to effect systemic change that can benefit the greater good for generations.
Creativity develops a higher order of thinking. ODA builds capacity through creative experiences that develop Creative Intelligence (CI) in all citizens. CI includes human qualities and future-making life skills like empathy, emotional intelligence, and critical thinking that enable people to use their knowledge and skills to deliver products, systems, services, and environments that improve life and optimize their ability to effectively deal with unusual, new, and unexpected situations.
ODA is therefore contributing to the development of communities of problem solvers, future-makers, and changemakers: active global & Afrikan citizens that can confidently add value, significance, and meaning to the future world of business, our environments, and society at large. This we believe is a sound way to develop social and human capital that’s future-fit and able to take the reins and uphold the UN SDGs way into the future.
