MASTER 10th ANNIVERSARY

Let’s celebrate together the 10th anniversary of the specializing master in design for kids & toys!

JUNE-JULY 2021

THE EVENT

At this moment where everything seems uncertain and where it is difficult to plan tomorrow with courage, we want to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the birth of the first Higher Education Course in Design for Toys at the Politecnico di Milano in an exceptional way!

The Higher Education Course in Design for Kids & Toys was the first in Europe dedicated to train specialized professionals in this field. While in 2018 it moved forward with the first Edition of the Specializing Master that offers the best Learning & Doing asset promoted by POLI.desgin – Politecnico di Milano.

  • We want to take the opportunity to celebrate our history with an ambitious and brave gaze to the future.
  • We want to offer to our international network of professionals, teachers and universities, students and companies an opportunity to envision with positivity and passion the evolution of Design for Kids & Toys, by designing the trajectories of a sustainable, renewed and most importantly a child-centred future.
  • We want to carry out this project in partnership with The Playful Living, an Italian start-up that is spreading the culture of Design for Kids with successful events and initiatives.

THE AGENDA

Online and offline events, workshops and contests aimed at offering a great opportunity of experimentation and creativity, by exploring the blended working, involving experts and passionate participants, and promoting positive cooperation.

From March to July 2021, the Specializing Master in Design for Kids & Toys together with The Playful Living will organize a series of events, workshops and contests addressed to companies in the children- oriented sectors and students and former students interested in envisioning and developing product-service systems.
