"Today we had our final demo day at ING Italy! In only eight weeks we went from a strategic challenge to a working prototype of a new service that Italian customers really want. It was a real pleasure to run the first PACE Program in Italy and work with this open-minded and committed team. Thank you for making my time in Milano so great." Rosanne de Vos - ING PACE coach
A great team and a great professional opportunity for me.
The first PARTY project workshop of the year has taken place in Windhoek. Great to see youths I worked with last year engaged again in the project. Julia and Silvia from PACO are participating to the March workshops session as members of the PARTY team. The last Saturday workshop engaged San students living in Windhoek to design new solutions for their communities.
In the occasion of The Art of the Brick, the Nathan Samaya's personal exhibition, The Design School for Children by PACO and CURE – Creativity for Urban and Rural Empowerment run the workshop “The power of the brick” at the Fabbrica del Vapore. Children and adults played together to better understand the cities and its spaces, using Lego.

My experience in Namibia as Service Designer for EU founded - PARTY project has just started. My PACO mate Valentina Salvi, who is already in Namibia for the same project, welcomed me. She is also working on her Master thesis about experimenting Design Thinking application to increase children awareness regarding local issues in disadvantages communities, run in collaboration with the Design School For Children by PACO. As member of The Design School For Children, I took part of one of the workshop she designed about Waste and Water in Otjomuise, a township in north-western Windhoek. The workshop took place at the Mammadù center. It has been a great chance to begin my exploration of the context and to get in touch with Mammadù center and his lovely guests.
