Design Thinking for Society – Unleash


New Perspectives. New Solutions.

Solving Society’s ‘Wicked Problems’

An increasing number of governments, NGOs and social enterprises are using design thinking to address ‘wicked problems’ — a term popularized by academic Richard Buchanan to describe society’s ambiguous design challenges, posed without any clear answers.

Design thinking enables new ways of tackling
the complex and intractable problems by

empowering citizens, engaging all the stakeholders and co-creating a shared vision in the change management process.

People are unlocking a way of seeing the world that enables them to see new possibilities and develop new solutions.

Design Thinking is a skillset, a mindset and an experience-based practice. In Hong Kong we are using it to creatively solve problems and find new ways to innovate, bringing social and economic benefit for Hong Kong people and communities.
