Design For Social Change

The story was compelling: kids walking to school in Rosedale, Kansas had no sidewalk on which to walk to get to school. The problem? How could design help? As a group we set out to find ways to highlight the issue which in turn put pressure on the local government. In 2012 city officials signed into being the beginnings of a multi million dollar sidewalk. It's amazing how a few well thought out concepts and the pressure of local people can bring to life something that would otherwise be totally out of reach of local residents.
