DESIGNING BETTER LIVES
FOR REFUGEES IN URBAN AREAS
From 2015 to 2017, What Design Can Do hosted the Refugee Challenge in collaboration with UNHCR and the IKEA Foundation. This global design competition responded to the increased numbers of refugees fleeing desperate conditions in their home countries in search of a better future.
The 5 winners won a grant of 10,000 euros each and joined a 5 month acceleration programme which was specifically tailored to their needs.
