Displaced: Design for Inclusive Cities | A Design Competition
Our world is witnessing a time of record migration and displacement. According to the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, there are now more than 60 million forcibly displaced people worldwide, the result of persecution, conflict, violence or human rights violations.
While immigrants and refugees face many challenges in their new urban lives such as language, access to services, employment, housing and cultural barriers; they also bring new energy to our cities and economy. Their success is our success.
Displaced: Design for Inclusive Cities calls upon designers of all disciplines to apply the power of design thinking to the urgent need to welcome, support and empower urban immigrants and refugees.
