Lebanon Redesign: What is the price to pay? Online Interactive Workshop by I Have Learned Academy In Collaboration with KAS - Konrad Adenauer Stiftung in Beirut

As we are reaching the end of an era for Lebanon political, economic and social system, it is time to re-design the country we aspire to live in. Yet, this will not happen without a price to pay. Let us tap into the design thinking methodology to re-design Lebanon.

Empathize : Who should the new design serve and to solve which problems?

Define: What are the core pillars of the new design that deal with people pain points and leverage their capabilities?

Ideate : How does the new design look like on a social, economic and political level to serve people aspirations?

Prototype: What is a reasonable roadmap to achieve the new design and who should join it, while building on the many existing citizens' initiatives?

Test: What is the social, economic and political price we are willing to pay during the transformation?
