Consciousness in decision-making

Did you ever experience intending to do good but ending up causing harm to others? This Day of Learning makes participants weary as they begin to design and propose solutions to development challenges in the Global South. The goal of this event is to create in the audience a consciousness of the potential impact development work can have, both good and especially bad. The aim is for participants, who are experts in their own rights, to be conscious of this possibility while they design solutions for or with people who need them, and to learn more about practicing empathy.

Sacha St-Onge Ahmad is a public health practitioner and researcher. Since 2016 she has been working on developing speech-based services for low-income men about maternal healthcare in Pakistan. She is currently a Program Manager at the Information Technology University in Lahore, Pakistan. She holds a master's degree from the University of Nottingham, United Kingdom in Public Health (International Health) and is interested in creating information communication technologies for maternal and child healthcare in low-resource settings.

About

Age of Wonderland 2017 presents 100 DAYS OF LEARNING, a global learning event to exchange valuable life experiences with peers. Doers and thinkers from around the world - innovators, scientists, engineers, artists, designers, social entrepreneurs - are invited to share their personal stories, ideas, and practice, not to be found in textbooks. Aim is to rediscover knowledge, challenge beliefs, and exchange life lessons with others. To make the world a better place, we need to embrace change on an individual level, and inspire others to do the same.

During World Design Event the gathered knowledge and experiences will be shared in daily talkshows at Peoples Pavilion and in Baltan Laboratories Expo (Natlab).
