Design for justice with us on the 13th of June!

Do you want to improve your design thinking skills while also innovating the employment sector?

Are you interested in creating more fair and flexible employment contracts that address the needs of both employers and employees?

We are organising a one-day event at the Border Sessions tech festival – the Design for Justice Lab. During the Lab, the participants will take part in a legal desing journey to innovate the employment sector.

Currently, employment contracts are inflexible, which hurts both employers and employees and forces them to prioritise their needs. Our aim is to allow the parties to take ownership of their contracts, and to create a contracting environment which is flexible, user-friendly, adaptable to the situation and mutually beneficial.

The Lab will be centred on using legal design thinking to find solutions. First of all, to get a grasp of the problem, participants will gather insights from people who have experienced problems in their employment. Then, they will use these insights to map the issue, to brainstorm about possible solutions, and to work out the most interesting ideas. The day will end with each team presenting their findings and ideas, followed by drinks and networking.

Join us to innovate the employment sector! You can register for the festival here, and for the Lab here.
