Disasters, design thinking, youth, and resilience

Disasters, design thinking, youth, and resilience are what Maggie Favretti is passionate about.

Design thinking is about promoting an innnovation mindset, and using collaborative approaches to solving complex problems. It can also empower students and their communities to build back efficacy after a disaster, and build resilience overall.

In this MYD Global episode we speak with educator Maggie Favretti about how she is applying design thinking principles in communities across Puerto Rico and beyond. With over 30 years of award-winning teaching, Maggie continues to engage high school students in learning by doing and making the world a better place. Her approach is helping build resilient communities by creating opportunities for young people to solve real world problems.
