Communities are diverse and difficult to comprehend. It is insufficient to consult individuals in positions of power, who frequently do not have the same interests as those on the ground. You can't expect that contacting a subset of a community will provide you with enough information to comprehend the entire group. More rigorous participation is required to gain a deeper understanding of the community, yet it is essential for successful solutions.
The problem is that top-down solutions are not tailor made and fitting the communities and actual issues within those communities. The process of the solution design shows a gap between the designers, project initiators, project managers and what`s the actual state of need and possibility on field, where the problem exists. There is a need for adult educators, NGOs and activists to be involved in the problem-solving processes on an equitable basis to adopt a new way of thinking and designing solutions – Design Thinking for Social Change. The EU is moving, changing, reinventing itself in the face of new challenges that can be both institutional (e.g. democratic gap) and circumstantial (e.g. pandemic, poverty, financial crisis and security challenges), always investing in new solutions and progress to elevate the social change.
