Design for The First World

19 Apr

Core 77 has featured this “Design for the First World” competition on their website. I think it’s brilliant, especially the short competition description:

“Dx1W has pro­claimed 2010 Inter­na­tional Year of the First World in Need, and has defined four main areas to address:

Food Pro­duc­tion and Eat­ing Dis­or­ders, Aging Pop­u­la­tion and Low Birth rate,

Immi­gra­tion and Inte­gra­tion to Soci­ety, Sus­tain­abil­ity and Over consumption.”

Fact is, we’ve got plenty to work on here in the 1st world. It isn’t to say that people here aren’t working on these issues, of course, but it is food for thought.

Check out the Dx1W website here.
