    • Developing a Brand name in burger like " Shami Burger "

      by Muhammad Zahid on 06/07/2017 10:37 AM BST

                                               Introduction/Background

      As many Syrian and other nation refugees had reached ,i.e in Sweden/other countries..

      For accommodating all with ,charity ,help ,philanthropic actions-is not a good idea.

                                                             Idea

      My idea is to develop a product /service for the refugees .Making it national and International

      Brand which will cater the needs and wants of refugees as well host nations .

      Like Food is the basic requirement and takes a bigger chunk of budgets/funds allocated for refugees .

      As Syria(Sham)has their own very old  recipes in food , if a product name "Shami Burger"

      is  developed /shaped into product equally acceptable to Syrians and rest of the world

      specially and introduced in Sweden, and rest of  Europe Plus  marketing  selling rights

      with product/complete know how and training package to  all big  global food brand

      chains .( I can explain it in detail if you like ).

                                           Benefits

      It will give jobs to Syrian/other refugees

      Reduce economic burdens to host nations

      Will help to integrate with public

      will enhance  their skills.

      In the light of this idea 

      a number of other dimensions (ideas) can be addressed like

      Like developing traditional Syrian outfits into an International Brands

      Handicrafts can be developed/designed shaped into Internationally acceptable product.

      If you need more detail please contact me

    • The Change The World Needs

      by Jenn Cranie on 07/25/2016 07:30 AM BST

      From beginning to end Refugees (and other destitute people) need more help, security and in general their human rights upheld. This idea can make this happen. This whole project will be usable worldwide, high quality, built from recycled and Eco-friendly products. It will incorporate shelter, education, personal development, a sense of community, essential survival items (food, warmth, health care, etc) and it will involve refugees themselves which in turn will help boost their self worth after everything they have been through.

      I look forward to sharing this project and it's updates (including photos, CAD designs and video) with you as it progresses. More information about my grassroots project can be found on my website.

    • Co-Create Fellowship

      by Aaron Wong on 07/25/2016 07:30 AM BST

      Refugees as a resource:

      The Co-Create Fellowship trains and supports refugees and provides reliable workers into the community that host them. In this model, EU businesses sponsor refugee fellows in their respective fields to strengthen their professional skills and most importantly, integrate fellows into the community. Fellows undergo basic integration training prior to placement, and receive continual training in a professional setting.

      Staying engaged:

      This fellowship acknowledges that refugees have skills to offer. While waiting for asylum, refugees can apply for training and placement through the fellowship. Once accepted, refugees start training. During this phase, refugees begin integrating into the host community. Once accepted, they are no long refugees; they are fellows deemed skilled enough to work. This gives validation to refugees that they belong as well to the host community that they are qualified. 

      Continual Community Development:

      Beyond being validated as skilled professionals, refugees will have the option to learn to be community leaders through social innovation methodology and become agents of change in both the refugee and host community. Fellows pave the way. By empowering and re-empowering refugees to become agents of change, the refugee and host community can co-create a new culture. By involving both communities everyone has something to look forward to.

    • Communal Kitchen

      by Asli Kolbas on 07/25/2016 07:30 AM BST

      Our intention was to design a kitchen that should serve for refugees, be independent of place, have a mobility that enables it to be dismantled and rebuilt. The main idea was to build a system that makes the users who are in need profit in the maximum way by using minimum. First we thought of self-sufficiency. How can a kitchen structure do that? Primarily, it should be built by the users where ever they are, however much  money they have in hands. So in this case, materials play an essential role and  2 things become important:1. Providing easy materials that are easy to build and that can be local to the area 2. Must be cheap for locals to supply.

      Apart from structure, food was the main issue. 'Self-sufficiency' showed us that we needed open, semi-open spaces to produce the food; we we provided that with agriculture beds and solar ovens; this can also gather the people due to the fact that it’s an event that people can enjoy, and make them feel like home and safe. There’s 2 types of details produced with the concept of self sufficiency. Detail 1 is used in the courtyard, and Detail 2 can be seen on the frontier walls. With detail 1, below surface is used for agriculture beds in winter. Pulling up the sheets also provides space; whereas in summer, by closing them we provide better climate and open space for gatherings. Detail 2 provides guidelines to fill between the fences.

    • Translating buddy

      by Mariette Haanschoten on 07/25/2016 07:30 AM BST
      Making a little translation tool that will help the refugees to communicate more with our citizens. One of the problems is that the refugees cannot integrate very well and this might help them with getting along with the locals, to build up more empathy.

    • KNOWIT - Cultural Exchange Platform

      by Ruben derKinderen on 07/25/2016 07:30 AM BST

      KNOWIT is a both digital and physical platform for cultural exchange. The platform, focusing on sharing ‘unwritten rules’ and traditions, provides valuable knowledge on culture and habit to help newcomers to adapt or integrate in the community. Also locals will gain more insight into their culture and habits.

      Newcomers often risk their lives or make mistakes because they don’t know any better. Walking on highways, misusing our health system or not mastering social conventions cause negative situations and reactions, further distancing the locals and refugees. 

      Together with the refugee and immigrant community in Berlin we started to design a digital and physical platform for navigating through different cultures and their traditions.

      Live events will be held to connect expats, immigrants, locals and refugees in an open, recreational setting. Cultural topics or situations – such as eating habits, job interviews or showing love – are reenacted and discussed from different angles. Information gathered from these events will be uploaded to an online archive (multiple languages) where newcomers and locals look back for this information if needed

      In this way cultural information is easily accessible and understandable for newcomers, and it creates an exchange between refugee and local to gain more insight on each others cultures.

    • Learning + Education Temporary Modules

      by Emily Carter on 07/25/2016 07:30 AM BST

      a creative solution to a design problem

      the utilisation of flexible architecture as a means for enhancing the emotional and physical health of refugees when they first enter a country. The goal is to educate, grow and develop the lives of both young and adult refugees fleeing dangerous situations. the design of transformable modules encourages creativity, something that is proven to relieve trauma and calm the brain. Allowing refugees the flexibility to design the configuration of their camp will enhance their emotional and physical health while fostering personal development in the early stages of settlement. Module One serves a sleeping module, while Module Two is transformable and serves several different functions dependent on the refugees' needs and wants at different times. the scheme is not solely about providing refugees adequate shelter, but is about making a statement and encouraging social interactions with the surrounding community. the design aims to utilise the vital relationship between children and adults, and how they can learn and develop together after separation from family or trauma. transformable modules can be pushed together in various configurations, allowing spaces for dance, drama or sport. Further, circular spaces can be configured for cooking classes and general knowledge classes. the space will encourage the local community to visit and volunteer
