Making Cents International is inviting youths for The Global Youth Economic Opportunities Summit 2015 in order to provide a demand-driven Knowledge Management (KM) platform to build the capacity of positive youth development stakeholders worldwide to design, implement, and evaluate high-impact youth economic opportunity programs, policies, and partnerships.
Participants will be offered an interactive session on exposure to the theory and practice of human-centered design (HCD) and design thinking methodologies.
