Could you create a design to meaningfully improve the lives of refugees around the world?  Do you have an idea that could address some of the challenges faced by the displaced people living in our cities?

This global student design competition is an opportunity to bring your ideas to life.

The winning entry will receive US$5,000, with additional prizes for the runners up.

Successful designs will consider issues such as housing and social engagement, and will capitalise on what the city has to offer including employment and diversity.
