Gemeente Veenendaal – Design Sprint


How can we ensure that all children in the neighborhood have equal development opportunities? This is the challenge that the municipality of Veenendaal, various primary schools and welfare organizations want to tackle.

Hoe kunnen we kinderen gelijke kansen geven?
Online Design Sprint


STUDIO.WHY designed a hybrid Design Sprint in which various parties worked together on a good solution to give all children in a certain neighborhood in the city equal opportunities. In the co-creation project, the participants are guided and trained by two trainers from STUDIO.WHY in the Design Thinking methodology so that they can go through the method themselves to research, brainstorm and form the perfect solution.


After a well-filled MIRO board with more than 500 post-its, a vision has been formed on organizing a good aid program for children in the neighbourhood. Through STUDIO.WHY Design Thinking, participants have gained insight into the most important factors that currently stand in the way of equal opportunities and demand for help. Together they brainstormed how they can remove the biggest obstacles, so that parents and children can ask for help in an accessible way and so that the development opportunities can be optimally used.
