How can we fight the fires in Turkey as a community?

 

In partnership with imece and teyit.org, ATÖLYE is hosting Designathon: Emergency Response” to design effective ways of wildfire response and support the ongoing relief efforts for the forest fires raging across Turkey.

 

The event will bring together an interdisciplinary community of local organizations and volunteers fighting the fires, creative industry professionals, designers, students, technologists and civil society workers.

 

At the event, which will take place on August 11, 2021, solutions will be produced in 3 focus areas:

  • Addressing urgent needs
  • Access to accurate information
  • Effective coordination and organization
