DCHI Award – November 17th, 2020
Do you think you have a pressing humanitarian challenge that can be defined in a compelling way so it fosters innovative solutions? The year 2020 has brought new and existing challenges to the forefront of humanitarian aid, that calls for working together more than ever! Both DCHI and ImpactCity strongly believe in the power of collaborating across different sectors, and so have joined forces to award €10,000 to the best humanitarian challenge! On this page you will find the competition information, criteria, timeline and application form.
The more time spent on understanding the challenge we are up against, the less the likelihood of developing an inappropriate solution. Both DCHI and ImpactCity strongly believe in the power of collaborating across different sectors, to gain the maximum potential expertise on offer. Often however, organisations are still struggling to harmonise their problems with appropriate partners and solutions. A key phase within DCHIs successful Accelerator Programmes focuses on clearly articulating the specific challenge to be tackled in the field. This important phase gives humanitarians the ideal business card that can help search for inspiring collaborators, and investors, in order to take a project to the next level of impact.
Post-2020 Humanitarian Challenges
The year 2020 has brought new and existing challenges to the forefront of humanitarian aid. DCHIs initiative Source2Gather recognised the need and opportunity to articulate these new challenges and match them with solution providers. Our award with ImpactCity seeks to build on these efforts, by exploring how we can articulate today’s most pressing humanitarian challenges following the global pandemic.
