ID Cares 2017 Volunteering @ Willing Hearts

One of SDN’s key focus is Design for Social Impact and we have embarked on a number of community projects over the years.

Over two days, (31 July and 3 August) our Year 1 and Year 2 students, together with their lecturers from the Diploma in Industrial Design (ID) made time to participate in a very meaningful project: ID Cares 2017 Volunteering @ Willing Hearts! The aim was to expose our students to social volunteering and awareness. This in turn, would aid them in their user behaviour research for their studio work.

A total of 60 students and lecturers participated over two sessions. They were quickly inducted into the flurry of activities as soon as the doors to the kitchen opened, getting into a busy start with pots and pans clanging and grills sizzling. The SDN Team also assisted in the packing of meal boxes and stayed till last task was completed and the kitchen cleaned and ready for the next day.

Another meaningful community project for SDN!
