Stanford Center on Longevity: Inviting applications for ‘2019 – 2020 Design Challenge “Reducing The Inequity Gap”: Designing for Affordability’.

Funding brief: The Stanford Center on Longevity invites university students from around the world to participate in its seventh annual Design Challenge.

About the 2020 Theme:
This year’s contest challenges teams to create solutions for “Reducing the Inequity Gap: Designing for Affordability.”

One of the key challenges of the 21st century is the rising level of inequity in societies around the world. While design and technology are increasingly being deployed to help individuals reach old age mentally sharp, physically fit, and financially secure; innovations far too often only reach people at the upper levels of socioeconomic status. The 2020 Design Challenge is targeting this issue by asking student designers around the world to identify and design for opportunities to significantly reduce the cost of innovations that help people at all ages do the things needed to increase their odds of long and healthy life outcomes.

Any design significantly reducing the cost of a solution contributing to longer and healthier lives will be accepted. The following are a few examples of categories that could be targeted:
The health and well-being of young people. Monitoring health and managing chronic disease.
Solutions that bring nutritious food to individuals.
Solutions that allow individuals to remain in their homes.
Encouraging higher levels of activity and engagement at the community level.

Challenge goals
 Encourage a new generation of students to become knowledgeable about issues associated with longevity and well being
 Create well-designed, practical solutions that promote lifelong healthy habits in all areas of well being
 Provide promising designers with a path to drive change in the world

What Kinds of Designs are Included?
