DESIGN FOR SOCIAL IMPACT!

January 31, 2018

I’m excited to share news of the next Design for Industry challenge from our partners at Autodesk, DESIGN FOR SOCIAL IMPACT, with support from UNHCR, WorldSkills and GoSol.org.  

 

Key Info: 

  • Design for Social Impact challenge is now LIVE and concludes 19 April:  www.autodesk.com/designforsocialimpact

  • Partners: Worldskills, UNHCR and two additional judges from GoSol.org -- for their technical prowess in the sustainable energy sector

  • Run Time: 26 January – 19 April, 2018

TWO WAYS TO ENTER THE COMPETITION, CHOOSE ONE OR BOTH

 

Category 1 - Design a Cooking Device That Does Not Burn Wood

The UNHCR, WorldSkills, and GoSol.org challenge you to design a cooking apparatus that can cook food *without* burning wood.  Your goal is to design an apparatus that will cook food cleanly* which will help reduce C02 and deforestation caused by charcoal production.

 

Category 2 - Design a Sustainable Housing Shelter

The UNHCR and WorldSkills have challenged you to design a durable shelter for refugee housing areas and survivors of natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes, fires, hurricanes, and typhoons. Your shelter design should be created with a specific geo-location in mind, and attempt to be made of locally-available materials.
