Humanitarian Design In Action

Mar 12, 2017

11:00am – 2:00pm CT

This session requires RSVP, and access will only be available to badge types listed under “Primary Access.”

When lives are at stake, it can be difficult to figure out how we can make a real difference. The Humanitarian Design Summit is about meeting the people who are using everyday design practices to prevent suffering and save lives.

This workshop will task participants with rapidly designing responses to a real world crisis scenario. The goal isn't to solve a difficult humanitarian problem, instead it's an opportunity to test out the principles of Humanitarian Design in a risk-free environment with world-class designers.
