Better World Challenge release announcement
Calling all socially-conscious designers!  The Better World by Design Conference, hosted by Brown University and Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI, is proud to announce the Better World Challenge!  The prompt: develop a solution to an aspect of the food desert problem.  What is a food desert? Quite simply, it is a geographic area with limited access to fresh, nutritious, or locally-sourced food.  Consider the intersection of your solution with cultural, environmental, political, and economic issues. This competition is open to any and all full-time students. Win the award for the best overall design, or win the implementation award and work with Providence officials to put your design into action.  Finalists are invited to attend the conference and meet a network of passionate design professionals.  Visit us on the web at www.abetterworldbydesign.com view the full prompt at http://www.abetterworldbydesign.com/content/better-world-challenge/.
