At the DesignThinkers Academy in Amsterdam, we take our social duty very serious when it comes to protecting the health of our valued participants and dear team members. This is why, during these past few months, we have also been doing our utmost in adapting to these unpredictable times. As a result, in light of recent developments, we have decided to put all courses at our creative Studio in Amsterdam on hold until further notice. We find it important that we minimize the contact moments and traveling moments for our participants. Lastly, we sincerely hope that with this small effort, we will also be able to contribute to the containment of the virus.
