Designers wanted for COVID-19 project

 

In an urgent effort to mobilize the global design community to address the COVID-19 pandemic, the World Design Organization (WDO) is calling on all available designers to commit to an initiative that will propose design-led solutions to a number of pressing challenges that are affecting us all.

In collaboration with IBM’s Corporate Service Corps and Design for America, WDO set out last week to identify over 180 challenge statements from across the globe. In a 24-hour turnaround, these issues have been distilled into seven large themes with the greatest potential for impact if addressed now.

WDO is calling on all those designers who can commit some time to work remotely together over the course of the next 10-14 days. They are looking for participants and team leaders to build working groups around these themes immediately. If you would like to participate, submit your interest below.

This Coronavirus pandemic as we all know represents the greatest challenge we have faced collectively and as designers and design thinkers have a duty to use our considerable skills to do our part to help address some of its most significant challenges.

Given the urgency and the alarming rate of this pandemic, workgroups will start working as of Wednesday, 25 March 2020.
