Expired: Openideo end-of-life experience challenge

Openideo end-of-life experience challenge

Each of our lives is a story. Let’s re-imagine how we prepare for, share and live through the final chapter.

Each of our lives is a story. As we plan for its final chapter, we have the opportunity to incorporate our passions, relationships, and spirituality to make dying better. How might we make this process more human-centered so we can live fully until the very end? Let’s re-imagine how we prepare for, share and live through the final chapter of our story.

Read the full brief for more information on the focus of this challenge.

Each year around 55 million people  worldwide and over 2.5 million in the United States face the end-of-life. In the U.S., the end-of-life experience has shifted dramatically since the 1950s, as death has moved away from the home into institutions like hospitals and nursing homes.  By the 1980s, less than 17% of people died at home. We believe the people and unmet needs behind these numbers inspire a huge opportunity for design.

With your help during our End of Life Challenge, we’ll work to reimagine the end-of-life experience for ourselves and our loved ones.

Awards:- Implementation & support from sponsors

Deadline:- 27-06-2016
