We embarked on this Challenge because we believe that it is critical to identify and support innovative approaches tackling the complexities of education in emergency situations. There are many exciting and innovative ideas within the Shortlist, and we wanted to take a moment to celebrate a subset of Ideas that focused on the Asia Pacific Region, with an emphasis on climate resiliency. We saw ideas in this region focused on engaging entire communities, designing sustainable education technologies, and region-specific data collection - and we are excited to share them with you!

We embarked on this Challenge because we believe that it is critical to identify and support innovative approaches tackling the complexities of education in emergency situations. Over the course of the challenge we’ll highlight several key themes we’ve seen, and a few ideas within those themes. These lists are not exhaustive nor representative of the all the Ideas, but we hope will help to illustrate and celebrate the diversity of organizations and Ideas participating in this Challenge. This week we are focusing on creative ideas to specifically support girls education in emergency settings.

As a long-time professor at Wells College in Aurora, NY, I’ve learned that I can’t always expect my students to be passionate about the same topics that I am. Over the last semester, thanks to OpenIDEO, achieving those golas is now incredibly easy.
