About the event:

What happens when 25 design innovation scholars from around the world combine inter-disciplinary ideas and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) D-Lab technologies with African indigenous knowledge to solve challenges of six rural villages in Botswana? The opportunity for radical innovation to alter the axis of the future is created.

In this session, we hear first-hand the results from one of the participants at the International Design Development Summit (IDDS) hosted by MIT D’Lab with the University of Botswana in the village of D’Kar during August 2015. The session will provide case studies of the approaches, insights and learnings of three selected projects over the two-week experiential learning lab. African design futurist Merle O’Brien presents case studies of the approaches, insights and learnings of three selected projects over the two-week experiential learning lab.
