Ideas in Action Summit: Reform Refugee Response

April 14 @ 8:00 am5:00 pm

Free — $35

The top­ic of this year’s Ideation World­wide’s annu­al sum­mit is Reform Refugee Respon­se. We will be joined by var­i­ous diplo­mats, rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Unit­ed Nations, emi­nent archi­tects, and aca­d­e­mics from Har­vard, Oxford, Columbia, NYU amongst oth­ers, to present and dis­cuss dis­place­ment issues faced by indi­vid­u­als liv­ing in refugee set­tle­ments.

On-site atten­dees will be pro­vid­ed the oppor­tu­ni­ty to net­work with the speak­ers dur­ing the hour long break, where lunch will be pro­vid­ed. Audi­ence of the livestream can pose ques­tions to our speak­ers via social media.

We encour­age par­tic­i­pants to reserve their seats as soon as pos­si­ble as space is lim­it­ed.

Par­tic­i­pants will also gain a work­ing knowl­edge of the require­ments for suc­cess in Ideation’s inau­gu­ral Refugee Mar­ket­place Com­pe­ti­tion. As it stands, the com­pe­ti­tion received 342 pro­pos­als from 34 dif­fer­ent coun­tries all com­pet­ing for a total of $30,000. We are antic­i­pat­ing an even big­ger turnout for our next com­pe­ti­tion, whose top­ic has yet to be announced.
