Design for the Other 90%

Event Date: 
October 9, 2009 - 11:00 - February 28, 2010 - 17:00

"Of the world’s total population of 6.5 billion, 5.8 billion people, or 90%, have little or no access to most of the products and services many of us take for granted; in fact, nearly half do not have regular access to food, clean water, or shelter. Design for the Other 90% explores a growing movement among designers to design low-cost solutions for this 'other 90%.' Through partnerships both local and global, individuals and organizations are finding
unique ways to address the basic challenges of survival and progress faced by the world’s poor and marginalized."
