Using the thematic framework of Ethics in Design (Equity, Diversity, Accessibility, Inclusion, Sustainability) you are required to develop a proposal for a design project that engages with an aspect of this theme. The theme is intentionally broad, with the aim to position your project within the context of social responsibility.

The Window Kids is an educational website that combines storytelling and web-based technology to teach children about cultural diversity. The phrase that “Students need not just mirrors but also windows”, forms the conceptual direction of this project as it focuses on showcasing the power and agency of culturally diverse individuals to open new ‘windows. Rather than being limited to only one ‘mirrored’ perspective of our own culture. The Window Kids aims to achieve more inclusive and culturally liberated societies for future generations
