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.

价格:会员免费 ***不是会员或您的会员过期?你可以成为会员,更新会员资格或获得一天会员资格(30元) - 无需预付,只需出现!***



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。


***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。
