This is a brilliant idea Wenjie! Starting in schools to re-design the learning environment, we could even think of expanding it to workplaces, so that adults can keep their creative confidence in creative workplaces that also reflect their identity. If the experiment is successful in schools, maybe young people who have gone through it could share their experience with employees in companies working in their communities. They could even facilitate similar open space design sessions in these companies, a nice way for them to apply the skills they will have developed thanks to the support of professional designers helping them in the classroom!
