About the Desyign Toolkit

The Desyign toolkit is an Erasmus+ funded initiative which has been designed by a consortium of European Youth Information providers to accompany the DesYign Online Course and has been created by a partnership of youth practitioners from across Europe. All of the materials in this toolkit have been tested in youth work settings.

It is an introduction to Service Design. It has been designed to accompany the DesYign Online Course and has been created by a partnership of youth practitioners from across Europe.
