NGO Projects

We have chosen to situate our learning in the Non Governmental Organizational (NGO) world to give us a little context and hopefully inspire some of you to consider applying your current and future design skills to making the world a better place!

Two global NGOs have identified the need to nurture more community owned innovation in support of Millennium Development Goals. They realize that people in developing countries and in other places not only have needs, but they also all have ideas, diverse understandings of challenges and resources. By connecting those with needs and those with ideas into a more global innovation marketplace, the NGOs hypothesize that there can be more ground‐up innovation to help reach these goals.

They have commissioned a group, from around the world, of leading young thinkers at an innovative university (YOU) to “ground truth” their hypothesis. You will do this by doing a study of how these global online groups and networks are strategically supporting innovative design from the ideation through production and user/customer support phase for products and ideas that help communities reach their own development goals.

Below are details on the projects each group will be working on.
