DESIGN THINKING 

The design thinking method is in the bottom of the innovation approach of Inspiration elevator project.

Target group 

The immediate target group are youth workers. The end users of our efforts are youth at risk. In each partner countries there will be an emphasis on specific youth sub-groups

innovation Products

Our project will bring to life a methodological manual for introducing design thinking in youth work and coach app for youth workers to develop their design thinking mindset.


The INSPIRATION ELEVATOR project combines the efforts of 4 EU partners.

Our consortium represents three main regions of Europe – Nordic (Norway), Central (Austria) and South Eastern (Bulgaria and Croatia). The starting point of our joint effort is supporting youth workers in introducing, organizing and implementing design thinking processes in their daily interventions with youth in risk, which will enhance youth employability and employment prospects.

The INSPIRATION ELEVATOR project has evolved taking into consideration the concrete national realities in each partner country. As part of preparing project concept, each partner conducted a national research to confirm the validity of our project direction. The development of our project idea coincided with the COVID-19 outbreak. We have tried to reflect on the impact from this unprecedented development on the field we are focusing, i.e. youth unemployment and youth work interventions to alleviate this negative phenomenon.
