Coming up with a good idea is important for solving complex challenges like climate change, but the solutions don’t just come out of thin air. Following a design process can help you work through your ideas. Try working your idea through these steps.



What is the problem you want to solve? What difference would you like to make? Have you seen any issues in the natural environment you would like to help address?
