Deadline: March 31, 2020
IDEO is accepting applications for the COVID-19 Communication Inspiration Challenge 2020. They are currently coordinating with global response authorities who want to make sure people have actionable, relevant information around COVID-19.
How might we rapidly inform and empower communities around the world to stay safe and healthy during the COVID-19 outbreak?
COVID-19 is changing the lives of people and communities around the world each second. The rapidness of the outbreak has left individuals and organizations alike grasping for information and actions that can be taken to stay safe and healthy in completely new and uncertain circumstances.
As a global community, we are grappling with how to nurture and care for ourselves and each other, even though we might not fully understand the ramifications of the situations unfolding around us, and while we navigate the new reality of social distancing. Information and access to it looks different for people around the world, as do responses to that information. Meanwhile, our spirits continue to seek and respond to stories and moments of beauty, joy, and inspiration that remind us of our humanity. And time continues to be of the essence, as we work to build supportive systems that will allow people to feel informed, connected, and prepared with each stage of the outbreak.
IDEO is currently in touch with global response authorities who want to make sure people have actionable, relevant information around COVID-19. We’d like to share a range of experiences from around the world with them, showing how people are accessing information: what’s working well to motivate behavior change, what isn’t working, and what feels missing.
They ask for you to share your COVID-19 experience so far: what’s working well to motivate behavior change, what isn’t working, and what is missing.
While they hope to build solutions together soon, at this moment they ask only for you to share your experience regarding information and inspiration you have seen around the COVID-19 outbreak that has helped you change your behavior, make new decisions, and gain inspiration.
Please do not share or attribute personal/sensitive medical information in your post.
