Coalition Spotlights

DCHI moves you into a new way of working. With our proven challenge driven programmes, engagement sessions and gamification we aim to let humanitarian aid work more efficiently. With access to a wide range of innovators within public and private organisations we build a coalition, a community, a coalition to work of the post COVID era of humanitarian needs. To empower the coalition, we will increasingly be sharing our coalitions stories about pilots and projects that serve as excellent examples of humanitarian innovation in action. In particular, we will be spotlighting projects that have collaborated with different partners to fulfill their desired impact. If you want a project to be spotlighted within the coalition, get in touch!

FACING A DIFFERENT CHALLENGE  To some extent, every humanitarian organisation is unique in its objectives and modus operandi. This means that our Humanitarian Accelerator Programmes have different uses for different organisations. For Save the Children Netherlands, this meant that they were not (yet) in need of external partners to face the modern and clean energy challenge. Stijn Koster and Janna de Jong, both Humanitarian Programme Managers at Save the Children Netherlands, are instead concentrated on shaping Save the Children’s environmental sustainability and climate change strategy to be further mainstreamed in their advocacy,…

Knowledge exchange – high level and cross sector insights from DCHI Academy Event

Knowledge exchange – high level and cross sector insights from DCHI Academy Event

The DCHI Academy had been set up to be a platform through which we can offer our coalition members various learning opportunities. We believe that our coalition members can maximise their learning potential through engagement and interaction with other sectors. With this idea in mind, we organised this hybrid edition about Knowledge Exchange with Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University. It was a unique opportunity for representatives from the humanitarian field, private for-profit sector, and academia to share insights, findings, and…
