Join us on Thursday, March 1 at 7pm to learn a bit about how humanitarian organizations are coming up with different ideas that may or may not involve technology to help people in vulnerable situations around the world.

During this meetup we will explore a few examples of what has been and is being done, learn about challenges and solutions, and maybe, who knows, you'll come up with a project!

We're first going to understand what "innovation" actually means in the humanitarian context. Then, we're going to dive into examples, such as the now famous Ikea-UNHCR refugee tent, and try to understand how they came up with the idea in the first place.

Our lab manager, Jade, is also going to share what she saw and what she learned from her previous experiences working at the UN and the Red Cross. ///////////////////////
***This is NOT a workshop or a lecture - just a bunch of people interested in the topic who want to talk about it and maybe come up with a project, so don't be shy and don't worry if you don't know a thing about it! We will figure it out together.

***About the costs of projects: Sadly Xinfab does not have funds to fund projects. The group splits the costs among its participants. Or if you're going to make something for yourself, its cost is on you.

3月1日星期四下午7点来跟我们了解一下人道主义组织如何提出不同的想法,这些想法可能涉及或可能不涉及技术来帮助世界各地脆弱的人们。

在本次meetup中,我们将探索一些已经完成和正在做的事情的例子,了解挑战和解决方案,也许,谁知道,你会想出一个项目!

我们首先要了解“创新”在人道主义背景下的实际含义。 然后,我们将深入实例,比如现在着名的宜家 - 难民署难民帐篷,并试图理解他们是如何提出这个想法的。

我们的Lab经理Jade也将分享她在联合国和红十字会工作的经历以及她从中学到的经验。

***这不是一个研讨会或一个讲座 - 只是一群对这个话题感兴趣的人想要谈论这个话题,也许想出一个项目,所以不要害羞,不要担心,知道一件事情!我们将一起解决。

***关于项目成本:可悲Xinfab没有资金资助项目。小组将参与者分摊费用。或者如果你要为自己做点什么,它的成本就在你身上。
