1. Inquiry

Research Powered by Youth

Our diverse crew of experts from across disciplines, in partnership with the young people, came together to conduct design research across three countries. Our inquiry work combined elements of segmentation research, ethnographic data collection, and youth participatory action research, structured through a transdisciplinary approach that features human-centered design. It sounds complicated. It doesn’t have to be.
