Inspired by children and their capacity to imagine better futures, social designer and educator, Emer Beamer, founded Design-a-thon Works in 2014 in Amsterdam, NL. What began as a one-day design-a-thon in one city has expanded into over 55 cities and regions worldwide with multiple design-a-thons taking place each year. Design-a-thon Works is powered by an incredible network of people who believe in preparing the world’s nearly 2 billion children to prosper in a rapidly changing and increasingly technological world.
