Design Science Lab in June

The 10th Annual Design Science/Global Solutions Lab is taking place June 22-30, 2014 in New York at the UN and in Philadelphia at Chestnut Hill College. Participants will be briefed by UN experts (from the UNDP, UNEP, UNESCO, UNICEF, WHO, FAO and other UN agencies), and then learn the basics of design science which they use to develop designs, programs and strategies that deal with one of the critical problems facing our world. The participants present their work at the UN to a group of UN, corporate and foundation leaders. After this their work is published in a book.

This year’s theme is Human Rights and Human Development: Eliminating Extreme Poverty by 2030. Further information can be found at
