design-thinking led international

open-innovation platform for 11-17 year olds to solve critical challenges, through our global education initiative


Lumi runs moderated and fun-filled quests that unleash the innate creativity of young minds

  • 10 participants across 11-14 & 15-17 age groups

  • Expertly moderated weekly online sessions  supplemented with guided offline engagement 

  • Each quest comprises 3 phases across with minimum 2 and maximum 5 month commitment:

    • Month 1: Ideation- delve into a specific global challenge & come up with ideas to help solve them in some way 

    • Month 2: Creation - scope & refine the idea in a small team and develop an initial blueprint, with external inputs

    • Month 3-5: Prototype & Development- develop a minimum lovable product initially targeting friends / family / school

  • Soon, select solutions emerging from the quests will move into the Lumi Lab from month 6, where they will be supported extensively to go further
