Amy Goodman will moderate a panel at this day-long conference at Fordham University.

The Design for Humanity Summit 2019 is a joint initiative of the Institute of International Humanitarian Affairs at Fordham University and the International Organization for Migration. Design for Humanity (D4H) aims to drive humanitarian response in a more dignified, inclusive, and sustainable direction through bridging the expertise of humanitarian and design professionals.

The Design for Humanity (D4H) Initiative launched in 2018 at the first Design for Humanity Summit at Fordham University. More than 350 people gathered to learn from 40 innovators working at the humanitarian design nexus – proving the hunger for and the possible impact of deepening the intersection between design and humanitarian action.

This year’s Design for Humanity Summit will feature Design Dialogues and Workshops that present innovative ideas and projects that foster inclusion, dignity, beauty, and integration for people uprooted by humanitarian crises as they rebuild their lives.

The conference program runs from 8:30 am through 6 pm. Amy Goodman’s panel session begin at 1:30 pm.

The panel is entitled, “How New Design Technologies and Tools Can Convert Data to Stories that Narrate Journeys of Displacement”

Sandra Vines, Director for Resettlement, International Rescue Committee
