We want our community to share about how are they being effective at home. Effective in doing what they are supposed to do, effectively managing their family’s efficiency, and yet imagining how a better world / tomorrow would look like??

What does the coronavirus pandemic mean for designers?
Creative tasks can open our imaginations, divert us from our feelings of fear and anxiety, and even prompt our brains to secrete feel-good compounds. Amid the worldwide coronavirus pandemic and social isolation, finding time for creative exploration and experimentation can feel overwhelming.  
You might be stuck indoors, but there are still ways to engage your brain and get the ideas flowing. Please share links to your creative endeavours. It could be a sketch, painting, doodle, recipe, poem, book, photograph, portfolio, etc, etc. Not only that.. we wanted to pick your brain and get some of your best tips staying creative and motivated. So, please share your recommendations for books, films, best articles, etc.

Become a mentor.
Join our network of volunteers who are empowering non-design teams/students to realize their creative potential.
Simply put, because you can make a difference in a student’s life, as well as your own. Consider the many benefits that mentoring offers: Improve self-esteem, encourage young students (non-designers) to think out of the box and improve design thinking skills, lead young people to realize their potential and creative abilities, provide support in their career, increase youth’s ability to solve social problems and design their own future.
Apart from all, establish yourself as a leader in your own field and improve your speaking and mentoring skills.
