The What Design Can Do Refugee Challenge is a global design competition that calls on the creative community to come up with game-changing ideas for accommodating, connecting, integrating and helping the personal development of refugees. The challenge specifically focuses on refugees in urban areas, as nearly 60 per cent of the world’s 20 million refugees now live in urban areas.
THEME To shape the briefs, extensive desk and field research was done to identify what experts say urgently needs to be addressed, and how these issues relate to what refugees themselves experience. These two perspectives led to important themes Submissions to the What Design Can Do Refugee Challenge will be private until the Feedback/Refinement phase begins on 1 May 2016. Only Challenge Moderators will have access to the ideas to provide initial feedback. Throughout the first phase, the WDCD Challenge will share inspiring ideas that have been submitted to the Challenge.
