Design X Social - Global Innovation Challenge 2021
In 2020 UMO united the global design community to tackle the COVID crisis with Design X Social “Life in the Lockdown Challenge 2020”. It raised the question “What if the lockdown is here to stay?” to identify and address some of the pressing social issues. Now a year later, even with the vaccination drives, we are still on our toes. While countries like India and Brazil are in a much deeper crisis.
Theme: Are we ready for the next wave?
The 2nd wave has inflicted such widespread pain and exposed the vulnerability of nations like India and Brazil. Whatever measures were taken during the first wave proved to be stopgap lacking foresight. In this program, we encourage people paired with UMO Design mentors to begin on a journey from problem identification to problem-solving using the design thinking approach.
Who should take part? Anyone!
In today’s connected world, everyone is empowered to influence a positive change. People from any domain and from any walk of life, passionate about bringing social change are encouraged to take part in this challenge.
