PASOS LIBRES’ FOUNDERS WROTE FOR ARCHIWUM KRYMINOLOGII, THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS POLISH CRIMINOLOGICAL JOURNAL
Pasos Libres’ founders Sebastián Arévalo Sánchez and Juan Pablo García Sepúlveda and professor John Winterdyk from Mount Royal University wrote an article “Using design thinking and innovation camps to combat forced labour: A case example” for the Special Issue on Forced Labor of the polish journal Archiwum Kryminologii (Archives of Criminology).
The article addresses the importance of educating young people on the risks of forced labour. Drawing on practical experiences in Colombia born out of the DataJam Pasos Libres, the authors exalt the value of integrating co-creation and innovation tools to promote a more effective, meaningful, and impactful knowledge transfer on forced labour between education disciplines. Moreover, the article approximates the application of design thinking and innovation camps to create alternative learning environments to educate the next generation of young changemakers capable of disrupting forced labour through innovation, entrepreneurship, and technology.
