We were educated about designing creative thinking in Luxembourg.
As part of the Erasmus + program, a training course “Designing Creative Thinking” was held in Luxembourg last week, with the participation of Argonauta’s employee, Ivana Marin. The training was attended by 20 young people from 12 countries, who were educated in 5 days about the method of designing creative thinking.
Through various informal methods, we were introduced to designing creative thinking that is a combination of divergent and convergent thinking. To understand the problem and get a heart, we used the interview method and answered our questions on the streets of Luxembourg. The participants were divided into 5 groups and covered topics of fashion, smart cities, alternative modes of transport, food, youth and, politics. After we “surveyed the terrain” and put all the questions on the table, we chose the one we want to find the answer to and offer a smart solution. We were also helped by a person who represented our target group and was able to test a prototype of the solution.
By addressing the theme of fashion through the prism of sustainability, we have learned that most people donate their clothes, but do not know what happens to them later. We also learned that the few who read where their clothing was manufactured and what route it took to exhibit in the store were also rare. Still, everyone liked the word “sustainable” and everyone would somehow participate in that sustainability. We concluded that it might not be the buyers, but the system that could offer a slightly better model of education on that sustainability, but also shops that offer recycled clothing or one that is not made on the other end of the planet and thus has not left such an ecological footprint to the earth.
Unfortunately, we couldn’t realize our prototypes. Nevertheless, we presented his scheme to the people of Luxembourg, whose reactions were positive and we were pleased to close a chapter called “creative thinking training”.

It is only up to the participants now to start applying this model in the business environment and to transfer its concept to others.
