Emergency Response: Designathon

August 2021 saw the worst wildfire season in Turkey’s history, with hundreds of square kilometers of forest burned near the country’s Mediterranean coast. Realizing the urgency of the situation, ATÖLYE organized a designathon “Emergency Response”” in partnership with imece and to design effective methods against wildfires in Turkey and support the ongoing fight.

The event convened an interdisciplinary community of local organizations and volunteers fighting against fire, creative industry professionals, designers, students, technologists, and civil society workers. Together, they discussed how to address the most urgent needs, prevent disinformation, and enable a coordinated relief effort.
