UN Women in Asia and the Pacific and WDO have launched a World Design Challenge to create a global mobilization of design professionals in an effort to brainstorm, research and ideate innovative solutions to the egregious reality of violence against women and girls (VAWG).
Violence against women is learned, and can therefore be unlearned or prevented entirely. Focusing on the Asia Pacific region, this World Design Challenge will take place over 12 days from 10 – 21 August 2020 and will bring together volunteer workgroups from around the globe who will work remotely to address the most urgent factors of this issue.
We are looking for interested and passionate designers, as well as other experts in the field of communications, science or professional research willing to contribute to this important project.
The deadline for submissions was 3 August 2020. The submission period has now closed.
