Our experience

Last year we organized international conference and service design workshop "Co-design your P(a)lace". The event became a prototype for the CHANGEmaker program. More information you can find here: https://www.codesignyourpalace.com/


We focus on real needs.

That is why we decided to answer the challenge of selected regeneration places which need our support! We will be working with real people, in real places, on real problems, and with real managers or leaders who are responsible for the particular regeneration processes. Each group will implement one solution in Copenhagen, London and Sieminawice Śląskie.

Service design doing

Based on Service Design Methodology you will create and implement solutions designed by people, with people and for people!

Learning by doing

We strongly believe that the best practice is learning by doing - you will certainly not miss this in our program!

Building your real experience

You will build your experience by implementing solution that supports regeneration process. Thanks to that you will enrich not only your portfolio, but also your knowledge, insight and community.


By taking part in our program you will participate in the creation of the impact handbook. The content of the publication will consist of:

  • tools we used
  • case studies
  • described solutions that we will be designing during the CHANGEmaker program
  • model of involving young people in regeneration processes designed by us!
  • bio of Changemakers that will take part in.


An international conference summarizing the project will be held in November/December 2020. During the event, solutions designed by Changemakers will be presented, as well as a handbook written by participants.


Train the trainers

As part of an international conference, we will train you how to be an animator who involves young people in regeneration processes using service design tools.

Sharing good idea

After our program, we would love to share our results and experience! We will encourage you to share your new skills with your local community.

Educational platform

We would like to share everything that will be happeninig during our program using educational platform. Every tool, good practice, any small discovery or improvement will be spread through our online platform. Be a part of a good e-changemaker movement!


Recruitment will start in October.
