WDCD - REFUGEE CHALLENGE

THE REFUGEE CHALLENGE SHORTLIST ANNOUNCED

The best of the What Design Can Do Refugee Challenge 2016 is announced!  A committee of over 30 creative professionals and humanitarian experts selected 25 of the total 631 entries for the shortlist. They will compete in the final round of the Challenge later this month.

“The bulk of entries clearly focus more on ethical and emphatic design and less on aesthetics, demonstrating that service design as a discipline is clearly on the rise”, says Challenge Leader Dagan Cohen. The shortlist will be on show during What Design Design Can Do Live, 30 June & 1 July. The next step will be that a jury picks 5 winners out of this shortlist of 25. Their names will be announced on 1 July, in Amsterdam. Want to view all the ideas? Visit the challenge platform, or learn more about this Challenge, and our partners UNHCR & IKEA Foundation by getting to know the challenge background. (Top photo: © Leo Veger)
