Place-based Innovation is a key intervention within the KTN Global Alliance Africa. It’s objective is to strengthen the local innovation ecosystem and improve access to meaningful opportunities in Gauteng, South Africa.

This full-day Design Workshop will bring local stakeholders together to co-create a shared vision for the future. Session 1 will take participants through a process of problem framing, while session 2 will look at how we can ideate solutions that reflect the priorities of stakeholders in Gauteng. Workshop outputs will be collated as an Innovation Action Plan that KTN Global Alliance Africa, its partners, and the local innovation community can use to deliver demand-driven programming.

We look forward to collaborating with you!
