Best Humanitarian Challenge Competition 2020: DCHI & ImpactCity Finalists

 

The more time spent on understanding the challenge we are up against, the less the likelihood of developing an inappropriate solution. 

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! Humanitarian organisations were challenged to clearly articulate a problem they wish to tackle in a short video pitch, and why they would benefit from collaboration.

Congratulations to our winner Human Aid NOW, our two runners up and other finalists!
