Over the past fifteen years, the Design Corps course at Pratt Institute has evolved from a “real-world” design firm experience for students to a research-based, collaborative endeavor that crafts effective systems in support of those serving diverse populations. In the process, it has benefited dozens of clients and hundreds of students through partnerships with cause-driven organizations that impact the lives of countless others, not just locally, but around the globe.

COALITION HISTORY: DEVELOPMENT BY FORCE MISSION STATEMENT THE COALITION for the Improvement of BedfordStuyvesant is a member association dedicated to working towards greater cooperation of local organizations and others committed to positively impacting the Bedford-Stuyvesant community. Our primary goals focus on maintaining and enhancing an equitable, healthy and sustainable community that produces economic and social betterment for the indigenous people of our community.

Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation

25TH ANNUAL 10K COMMUNITY

HISTORY OF THE COALITION During August of 2002 Councilman Al Vann convened a diverse group of stakeholders serving the Bedford-Stuyvesant community who were involved with economic and/or physical development and related programs and/or projects. The Councilman recognized the value in having such a group to serve as an informal, centralized communications vehicle and “think tank” regarding economic andphysical development matters. A result of the initial

RUN &FUN WALK OCTOBER 8 2006

August 2002 meeting was the creation of the Bedford-Stuyvesant Economic & Physical Development Task Force. This Task Force included approximately twenty-five organizations located in and/or performing activities that benefited the residents of Bedford-Stuyvesant. The Task Force met faithfully every six weeks and more frequently in committees. During its existence it became a valuablecommunity communications network, successfully advocating on behalf of the community with respect to land-use issues, specific development projects and policies impacting upon Bedford-Stuyvesant. Further, the Task Force, actively working in concert with Community Board # 3, became a place for public officials, developers, community groups and other entities involved with economic and physical development to ask for advice, feedback and/or support. Along with the Community Board, it acted as guardian of the values and goals expressed in the Bedford-Stuyvesant community’s 197(a) Plan.

In the fall of 2005, the Task Force, acting upon the recommendations of an Organizational Development Consultant secured with a grant from the Independence Community Foundation, resolved to institutionalize itself as the Coalition for the Improvement of Bedford-Stuyvesant. Today the Coalition continues and has expanded upon the Task Force functions as a community convener, communications network and neighborhood “think tank.” It is also working to bring investment, jobs and services to Bedford-Stuyvesant through co-convening with the Comprehensive Neighborhood Economic Development Initiative (CNEDI), and by attempting to push forward those projects identified in the Bedford-Stuyvesant 197(a) Plan to implementation. The Coalition functions via four working committees – Communications & Mobilization, Economic Development, Physical Development, and Social Development. Membership is open to organizations who subscribe to the Coalition’s mission & values and pays the membership dues.

Himalayan Health Center values all individuals and their communities.

We are working in an extraordinary place.

“You must be the change you

We are achieving these goals in a threephase plan that includes:

Manali is the gateway to the western Trans-Himalayas in India – a region cut off from modern civilization and accessible healthcare for seven months a year due to snow accumulation. The resident population of Manali is over 500,000 and grows to 700,000 when combined with the nomadic and Tibetan refugee settlements.

The need for health services is great. Himalayan Health Center and its partner programs have been working in this region for over 12 years. Traveling by foot and road, we have seen first hand the difference that quality healthcare can make and this was our motivation for building a specialized health center.

Please consider it carefully.

To ASSIMILATE into the community with the help of local leaders so that we can affect positive changes in the public health and medical systems.

Through the construction, equipment and staffing of the Himalayan Health Center, we will be able to provide life-saving healthcare and surgical procedures for these patients.

Essential medicines and treatments for common ailments like Strep throat and Tuberculosis are an impossible financial burden on the patients we treat, but without medical care, these diseases can lead to serious illness and even mortality. The Himalayan Health Center and its outreach programs are a beacon of hope in a region with dire need.

Your contribution will have a direct and life-changing impact on this deserving and profoundly underserved population.

To DEVELOP an outpatient network of healthcare providers in the region.

Our patients are a mixture of Tibetan refugees, nomads wish to see in the world…” and local tribal people living in the high reaches of the Mahatma Indian Himalayas who, at the moment, mustGandhi travel hundreds of kilometers to reach the nearest health center.

The average yearly income of a family in India is only $476.

Our goals in both the present and future: To BUILD and operate a hospital in Manali that will act as both an in-patient referral center and a site for specialized medical and surgical procedures.

We are working to eliminate the overwhelming obstacles that stand in the way of the accessible, essential healthcare to which everyone is entitled.

At present there are only two small hospitals in Manali with a combined capacity for only 35 in-patients. The closest hospital with full surgical capabilities is over 200 miles away on mountainous roads and Himalayan Mountain passes reaching 14,000 feet high, often traveled on foot. The Himalayan Health Center will be built in Manali, bringing modern and affordable healthcare closer to this underserved population.

HimalayanHealthCenter.org

Traveling long distances for healthcare is a monumental struggle both physically and financially.

1.

Acquisition of property and construction of a hospital.

2.

Commencement of out-patient services in Manali through the hiring of local medical staff and volunteer US-based senior clinicians who use donated medical supplies.

3.

Development of a network of primary care physicians who will focus on preventive health care in homes and villages that will include AIDS prevention programs, nutrition, prenatal care, and infant/child care.

volunteer computing.

Without your help, providing reliable and essential healthcare will be impossible. In order to continue and expand upon our current programs, we rely on your donations, which are our only source of funding. The stark reality is that without them, these populations go without essential medical care and face not just a lifetime of pain and suffering but, many times, death.

Since 1996 we have provided free medical and dental care to over 140,000 patients in the northern reaches of the Indian Himalayas. We have also sponsored over 250 life-saving eye and heart surgeries to men, women and children.

NYC power plant emissions contribute to over 1,000 deaths and 25,000 asthma attacks in the Metro area...

• PV manufacturing companies tend to locate in areas where solar policies are strongest, such as California, Germany and Japan. • NYC imports fossil fuels to generate electricity from outside the state and country. Since solar is inherently local, more PV means more money stays within the city and state economy.

2008

A few years in, Design Corps’ mission had produced concrete results in the form of logos, business papers, newsletters, invitations, annual reports and action packets. While some clients were in other states, our impact was primarily local — both in terms of the client and the students in the department, who focused on the course’s opportunity to work with ‘real’ clients and produce actual printed work. The focus on process (and the print-based nature of all our work) was underscored in the palette of our identity and marketing — and fittingly echoed by our being featured in CMYK magazine. But we were poised to start engaging with global partners and taking on more diverse projects, ranging from website and user experience to research and complex design systems.

CIVITAS in action Bringing CB8 in Line with other NYC Contextual Zoning Districts

With a coalition of Community Board 8 members and neighborhood groups, CIVITAS is working to reduce the negative impact that community facility expansions can have on neighborhood quality of life. The Community Board 8 (CB8) district permits greater development potential— known as floor area ratio— for mid-block community facilities (such as schools and houses of worship) than any other New York City neighborhood. When mid-block contextual zoning on the Upper East Side was approved in the 1980s, higher FAR was intended to be temporary to accommodate a few develop-

ACCESSIBLE EDUCATION

We visit the villages prioritized by the education ministry with the greatest need and survey their community and educational leaders to gain better understanding of desires / needs / commitments. They must provide at least 10% of project funding, which most often consists of materials and labor so that entire community finds ways to participate in construction process.

We form three kinds of partnerships:

< parTNEr NgO wiTh aT lEaST 10 yEarS ExpEriENCE ON ThE grOuNd < lOCal EduCaTiON miNiSTry < a COmmuNiTy iN NEEd

OwNErShip = SuSTaiNabiliTy

TESTiNg mETriCS

Schools are not viewed as a gift. Each school belongs to the village itself, under the jurisdiction of the education ministry that we partner with. By engaging the community from the earliest stages and ensuring this participation, the sense of ownership will lead to long-term sustainability.

We don’t just want to build buildings, we want to build education. We objectively test in our schools to demonstrate to donors and supporters the impact of our schools on the children who attend them.

dON’T lEavE SChOOlS afTEr buildiNg We work to facilitate the construction of each village’s school, and provide long-term support to ensure sustainability. Before we break ground on any school we include three years of school supplies, three years of school maintenance costs, and two years of additional teacher salary into our budget. Our in-country coordinators consistently check-in with each community to ensure their needs are being met and we step in to provide assistance whenever necessary.

yOur dONaTiONS maTTEr aNd lEad TO lONg laSTiNg rESulTS We don’t just want to improve an individual’s activities, we want to improve his or her status. Students have careers beyond farmers or weavers to aspire towards. We also care about more than just academic education. Our coordinators teach life-enhancing lessons about proper hygiene, personal health, nutrition and environmental care.

Juneteenth commemorates the day on which African Americans in Texas, who had been kept enslaved two and a half years past the abolition of slavery, finally received news of their freedom. For this exhibit, we are showing works that celebrate this moment of enlightenment, pay homage to ancestors who afforded this autonomy and investigate the African diaspora at large as a legacy of liberation.

Even if you’ve only heard about the neighborhood, we invite you to explore East New York through the eyes of an artist. Pieces that most creatively and positively portray the culture, character and community of this Brooklyn destination will be displayed for exhibition.

Queens College Hosts AIDS Awareness Event There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

THE MISSION

TAKE THE LEAD prepares, develops, inspires and propels women to take their fair and equal share of leadership positions across all sectors by 2025. It is today’s women’s movement —a unique catalyst for women to embrace power and reach leadership parity.

TIMING

Barriers to leadership parity have been researched and documented ad infinitum

It’s only fair for all to have an equal chance

Technology and social readiness make now the moment

Women’s ambivalence about power

In 2012, Catalyst found that in Fortune 500 companies, women hold less than 17% of board seats, and a paltry 4.2% of CEO’s are women. Shockingly, the U.S. ranks 95th IN THE WORLD in female representation in Congress, way behind most of the developed world.

ECONOMICS

TIME TO SHIFT THE FOCUS FROM PROBLEMS TO SOLUTIONS

JUSTICE Women are half of the workforce and earn 57% of college degrees. Yet women have been stalled at 18% of top leadership positions across all sectors of business and government for two decades.

THREE URGENT REASONS WHY TAKE THE LEAD IS NEEDED NOW

Gender biases and stereotype in society that are internalized by women

More women than ever are poised to lead. They need skills and strategies to attain and inspiration to embrace positions of power and leadership. Technology makes it possible to accelerate ACCESS TO learning programs and to connect women in powerful, purposeful networks. Technology enables workplace flexibility that benefits women, men, and families. Dual-earner households are the norm, creating a critical mass of men and women who want family friendly ways of working and who expect equal pay and opportunity.

Gender divide in negotiating skills Reticence of women to advocate for themselves Differences in leadership and communication styles Lack of female role models, sponsors and mentors Inflexible workplace structures, double burden of caregiving and work

Women represent a valuable economic resource that is wasted if they do not contribute their skills in leadership positions. Companies with more women in upper management and boards make more money—McKinsey & Company and Ernst & Young. Elected bodies with more women make better decisions—the World Bank. Women make more than 80% of consumer goods purchases. Imagine how pay parity would boost the economy.

Bees are flying insects closely related to wasps and ants; they are known for their role in pollination and producing honey and beeswax. There are nearly 20,000 known species of bees in seven to nine recognized families, though many are unidentified and the actual number is probably higher. They are found on every continent except Antarctica, in every habitat on the planet that contains insect-pollinated flowering plants. A sanctuary, in its original meaning, is a sacred place, such as a shrine. By the use of such places as a safe haven, the term has come to describe any place of safety. This secondary use can be categorized into a human sanctuary - a safe place for humans - such as a political sanctuary; and non-human sanctuary, such as an animal or plant sanctuary.

IMPACT

Ongoza believes that by combining youth economic empowerment and community leadership, we are offering youth an alternative path, one which can lead to sustainable peace. We begin by identifying groups of young women and men organized around a social cause and micro-enterprise. To accelerate their businesses, we assess their needs and weekly provide technical training, coaching, and connections on a need basis. We then train our youth groups to actively engage their communities by mentoring them through the implementation of social projects, transforming them into change agents leading holistic solutions to community

development. Last, we unite these youth leaders from across the country to discuss national policy issues and elevate youth voices.

WHY ONGOZA? Ongoza was founded in the wake of Kenya’s 2007/8 post-election violence, when neighbors turned on neighbors and ethnic-targeted attacks surged. We understood quickly that there was an underlying cause to the violence: youth socioeconomic vulnerability. As little as five dollars from politicians incited many to riot in the streets, kill members of different ethnicities, loot, and destroy property. Today there are around 14 million youth (18–35) in Kenya, 67% of which are unemployed.

Identify prospective youth partners with a dual micro-enterprise WHERE WE WORK and social impact activity. We currently operate in 3 counties in Kenya; within 3 years, we plan to be in 15 counties. Each county in which we operate is strategically chosen as an area where there is both a high occurrence of youth vulnerability and a basic environment for business growth.

Nyasoko for Jesus was founded in Migori County in 2008 as a platform for unemployed young people and reformed drug addicts to find sources of sustainable income. Nyasoko is involved in various enterprises such as farming, poultry keeping, and brick making. With agricultural inputs and business training from PAD, Nyasoko increased their yield in one harvest from 270 to 2,700 kgs; they reinvested their profits in poultry-keeping and briquette making. Nyasoko uses their proceeds to advocate for peace and promote HIV/ AIDs awareness among young people in their community.

KITO INTERNATIONAL KITO International was founded in Nairobi County in 2010 by Wyclif Otieno, with the motto “by the street youth for the street youth.” Having lived on the street himself, Wyclif created KITO with the aim of providing life skills and vocational training for his peers. Under the brand name Eco-Safi, KITO also runs a social enterprise selling hand-detailed boutique paper bags from recycled paper, sandals made from tires, and screen-printed shirts. KITO already boasts of clients ordering 1,300 bags a month and has identified potentially transformative markets in tourist boutiques and big-box retailers. A portion of the profits fund KITO’s rehabilitation programs for street youth and their trainees are employed in the business.

Picha Tamu started as a theatre group in Nakuru County in 2008 under the mentorship of two thespian friends, Byron and Mosho, “to share a message of hope, peace, and social justice.” The group initially focused on youth empowerment in the surrounding community and the nurturing of talent through theater, but has since diversified to include garbage collection and agri-business enterprises. Their businesses engage over 50 youth in Naivasha Town and their theatre has been featured at local and national celebrations.

International Reach

While several Design Corps clients over the years had worked internationally, remote conferencing and good word of mouth led to students working with clients in even more countries starting in 2015. As we continued to work with local organizations, our work and impact crossed borders and oceans — with clients located or doing good work in South Africa, Tanzania, Brazil and Afghanistan — and students meeting with client teams and partners located in Nairobi, London and Johannesburg. Projects have ranged from environmental campaigns for the Rainforest Foundation US, a UN-focused report for Child Soldiers International and identities for medical, economic and educational initiatives — all thousands of miles away, but producing results that were no less concrete.

3 ‘The Committee expresses deep concern about the fact that adolescent boys and girls are being recruited, including through the use of social media, by State armed forces.’ CRC General Comment 20 on implementation of the rights of the child during adolescence. (13)

TARGETING CHILDREN FOR RECRUITMENT The preceding section has shown how the military recruitment of children can be harmful to children and violate their rights, even where it may be lawful in principle. Since the best interests of children must be a primary consideration, which includes regard for all their fundamental rights, states do not enjoy unlimited discretion in recruiting them for military purposes. The Committee on the Rights of the Child has repeatedly expressed concern to states which enlist large numbers of children, recommending they increase efforts to recruit adults and/or raise their enlistment age to 18 (14).17

The Child Recruit's Journey

Germany’s main newspaper for schoolchildren runs advertisements for the armed forces in most editions. Armed forces ‘Adventure Camps’ for children aged 16 and above are advertised in an In practice, however, many states online teen magazine for children aged from 10 years (21), while target children as potential recruits long before they become online marketing is targeted at eligible to enlist. Research by UK 14–17-year-olds, who are invited to play online games linked to and US armed forces finds that recruitment (22). The advertising most recruits commit to signing does not mention risk, death or up before they are old enough injury, focusing instead on ‘good to do so; and young people are training, promotion prospects, less likely to join up unless they have become actively interested comradeship and plenty of

in military life by their mid-teens (15,16,17). The former head of recruitment for the British army characterised his recruitment strategy as ‘drip, drip, drip’ from about the age of seven (18). The US Army’s ‘School Recruiting Program Handbook’, instructs recruiters to target children below the minimum enlistment age because ‘if you wait until they’re seniors, it’s probably too late’ (19). In Australia, children can register their details from the age of 10 with Defence Jobs Membership to receive recruitment information and news from the armed forces (20).

adventure’ (21). In defence of this approach, a spokesperson stated that ‘the German armed forces did not broach the issue of overseas military missions in their advertising just like advertising for chocolate does not mention the risk of getting fat’ (21).18 Experts testifying to the German parliamentary committee criticised this as ‘false advertising’: ‘In view of what is involved in the military profession, the potential to be killed and all the dangers associated with this, this is irresponsible to young people and in no way fulfills the protective function and the protection mandate which the Bundeswehr as a parliamentary army ultimately has.’ (22)

17. CRC art 38 also imposes a legal obligation on states which continue to recruit children ‘to give priority to those who are oldest’ amongst them. 18. In contrast, producers of tobacco and alcohol are required to advertise their health risks, and nutritionists have called for this to be extended to junk food.

Justicia Mpumpalanga, South Africa

The Happy Homes initiative sought to improve early childhood education standards in the rural areas of South Africa by empowering members of the community to take ownership of their children’s development. The campus garden and feeding program was started in an effort to address educational issues exacerbated by rural poverty. The garden program provides daily meals for the students and the surplus crops are sold to the village community as a source of revenue for the school. Resources and funding are provided in a manner that promotes sustainability and a multi-generational legacy of learning.

RESILIENCE The RETI Center takes a holistic approach to build resilience by addressing the physical needs of the city as well as the underlying social, economic and organizational disparities that compound a community’s vulnerability to climate change by investing in the human capital locally.

EDUCATION

creating resilience in our community

Local educational institutions play a major role in offering programs that can educate community members to directly address skilled trade and manufacturing industry needs. The RETI Center can be utilized by educational institutions to further develop the skills necessary to train students through hands-on exercises.

TRAINING Encouraging innovation is paramount to our mission to foster the growth of exisiting businesses, new markets, and new product developmment to expand opportunities for the workforce where these new sustainable technologies and services do not yet exist.

INNOVATION By fostering programs that further educate and train youth, the underemployed, and unemployed members of a community are able to obtain fair-paying employment in skilled trade and manufacturing occupations that contribute to building more equitable communities. Training can be conducted in facilities or through partner businesses or educational institutions.

Our Vision A world in which local surgeons have the knowledge, skills and support the need to treat debilitating injuries in their own communities.

3a

Our Work

We operate with doctors, not for them.

Our volunteer surgeons travel to developing countries and train local doctors in their home hospitals. These world class surgeons impart knowledge to improve trauma care and reconstructive surgery, using local facilities. After returning home, they keep in contact as mentors through telemedicine, providing an ongoing support network for local doctors.

“With Mission: Restore they empower you. They give you the techniques and then give you the confidence to go on by yourself.” -Dr. Brian Mawalla, Surgeon, Tanzania

P26

A Global Challenge

Each year, over 50 million traumatic injuries occur globally. 90% of them are in the developing world. Yet the poorest 1/3 of the world’s population receives only 3.5% of surgical operations worldwide.

Where We Work

Our surgeon educators have worked around the world including: Afghanistan, Bolivia, Haiti and Iran. We currently partner with hospitals in Tanzania and Myanmar.

Surgical Training Mission In-person training with top US surgeon educators

Surgical Educational Grant

At Mission: Restore, we are creating a world in which local surgeons have the knowledge, skills and support they need to treat debilitating injuries in their own communities. Vision

Therefore, the rights of children, as guaranteed by the CRC, are violated when their recruitment for military purposes: prejudices mental or physical health; interrupts the education in which civilians of the same age typically participate; entails an elevated risk of bullying or sexual harassment, involves physical violence or is psychologically coercive; restricts the right to leave at will; limits or suspends many of the civil liberties or employment rights that civilian children enjoy; or denies them their right to a juvenile justice system. This report will show that, by these measures, military employment violates the rights of children set out in the CRC. On this basis, child recruitment as currently practised around the world may be generally unlawful. In its interpretation of the CRC, the Committee on the Rights of

18

Optional Protocol on the Involvement of Children in Armed Conflict

parents fully understand all the risks and consequences of their enlistment. These include, for example: the psychological coercion of military training; the suspension of certain civil rights; the risks and legally- binding restrictions involved; and the ethical quandaries inherent in military work. They must also endeavour to ensure that children are not involved in hostilities.

To meet these safeguards, military employers must ensure that potential recruits and their

13. When states ratify or accede to OPAC they must submit a declaration specifying a minimum age for enlistment into state armed forces, which must be no less than 16 years. The declaration is binding; enlistment practice is unlawful if a state recruits below the age specified. States may amend their declaration to raise the minimum enlistment age, but not to lower it. 14. OPAC art 1, 2, 3. 15. ILO 138 art 3. 16. ILO 182 art 3.

the Child has suggested that military settings, which entail restrictions on rights and the promotion of violence as a tool, appear to be fundamentally incompatible with children’s rights to an environment conducive to learning and development (12)

OPAC stipulates that children must not be recruited unless: they are at least 16 years old13; it is their ‘genuinely voluntary’, ‘fully informed’ choice; and their parents or legal guardians have given their ‘informed consent’. In addition, it requires states to ‘take all feasible measures’ to ensure child recruits do not participate directly in hostilities until they turn 18.14

The age where German armed forces begin advertising in youth-oriented media As will be explored later, information provided to child recruits and their parents typically presents military life in glamorous terms, omits its risks and difficulties, and provides perfunctory details on legal obligations. Sophisticated marketing techniques are used to exploit vulnerabilities particular to the adolescent psyche. Full details of the recruit’s legal commitment are often provided only at the moment he or she signs up, with no time to analyse and absorb their implications. Often, applicants have yet to develop sufficient literacy or maturity to comprehend for themselves their complex terms of service and their lasting consequences. In these circumstances, child recruits and their parents are denied their rights under OPAC to be ‘fully informed’, and so their choice cannot be considered ‘genuinely voluntary’.

International Labour Organisation (ILO) Conventions 138 and 182

ILO Conventions 138 (Minimum Age Convention) and 182 (Worst Forms of Child Labour) also have implications for the legality of child recruitment. ILO 138 reserves for adulthood only ‘any type of employment or work which by its nature or the circumstances in which it is carried out is likely to jeopardise the health, safety or morals of young persons’.15 It is left to states to determine which types of employment are ‘hazardous’ for the purposes of the Convention, which allows them to exempt their armed forces. The principle remains, however, that those under 18 should not be employed in hazardous work, and it is clear that military employment carries several significant hazards to the health

and wellbeing of child recruits. ILO 182 requires states to prohibit and end the worst forms of child labour, including ‘forced or compulsory recruitment of children [under the age of 18] for use in armed conflict’.16 Like OPAC, ILO 182 does not prohibit ‘voluntary’ recruitment of children under 18, but it does reinforce that this is only permitted insofar as it is strictly voluntary. Where this is not the case, the practice violates the convention. 

The Golden Rule Everyone’s hours are equal. The “golden rule” of timebanking is that everyone’s hours are equal, regardless of the nature of the act. An hour of babysitting earns one time credit. An hour of legal help earns one time credit. By helping others, the credits earned can then be exchanged within the timebanking system at www.togetherwecan.timebanks.org to help each got. timebanker get their own needs met in return.

Give what you’ve Get what you need.

Contribute whatever you are capable of to help an individual or an organization with a need that matches with your abilities.

3. Log Log your time on the Together We Can Timebank website.

4. Exchange Use your time credits to get what you need from another timebanker that can help you in some way.

5. Repeat Continue the cycle and help the timebanking community grow!

Core Values Assets Every one of us has something of value to share with someone else. This can be anything — from childcare to home repairs to tutoring and much more!

Redefining Work There are some forms of work that money will not easily pay for, like improving communities and strengthening families. Time credits were designed to reward, recognize, and honor that work.

Reciprocity Timebanking is a two-way street—the receiver and the giver both benefit from the exchange. Paying it forward ensures that together we help each other build the world we all live in.

Social Networks By helping each other, we form communities of support, strength, and trust. Community is built by creating roots, building trust, and strengthening networks, all important elements of timebanking.

Newburgh

Regional Collaboration The historic city of Newburgh, New York, sitting 60 miles north of Brooklyn, became a kind of second home to Design Corps from 2018 to 2020. Students produced work with five very different clients — from a community time bank to a cycling awareness initiative and repair cafe. In contrast to all our work in areas like Red Hook and Bed-Stuy, Newburgh allowed students to look beyond the backyard of Design Corps’ home city. But its relative proximity also meant that — unlike with our international work — student cohorts were able to visit the city, walk its streets and, most importantly, speak with its residents.

Blue City Lab

Blue City Lab Programming

Our first floating building will be Blue City Lab, for offices, experiments, education and training. Unlike any building New York City has seen, it will welcome the public to experience and learn about sustainable life on the water. This design is the blueprint for creating buildings of different sizes and functions, which we will build for Blue City and other locations.

RESILIENCE Produces energy via solar panels, harvests rainwater and provides shade. LIBRARY / GATHERING SPACE Provides a space for knowledge sharing, gathering together, holding events, training and education. OBSERVATION DECK Functions as a space for classrooms, holding events, and gathering together. INNOVATION SCIENCE L AB Allows for blue and green data collection and hands-on science education through garden access.

BLUE CITY Superstorm Sandy proved that New York City is not prepared for the direct impacts of climate change. Surrounded by water on three sides, with a vulnerable population and ecosystem, Red Hook, Brooklyn, was among the hardest hit areas of the city. In response, RETI Center has built an international coalition of experts to create Blue City as a model for the climate change industry

A Meal on a Mission Whilst education is often seen as the main cure to fix youth unemployment, statistics indicate that, in South Africa, young people who attend university often still remain unemployed (Statistics South Africa 2018). Young people aged 15–24 are more than six times less likely to be employed than adults who also attended university.

T-Shirts

Additionally, university level education remains unattainable to many South African youth due to lack of monetary resources or proper training. This has led to the beginnings of a shift from solely focusing on improving youth employment prospects through university level training to instead also prepare youth for employment opportunities available outside of university in both the formal and informal sectors. Around the world, self-employment is typically seen as a viable means to provide income; however South Africa falls behind in this sector.

Inkululeko students receive formal entrepreneurial training once a week and participate in operating the cafe a few days a week. The training is typically related to the operation of the cafe, so students participate in activities such as calculating profit margins, balancing budgets, or analysing buying patterns to better optimise the menu. Involving the students in the day to day operation of the cafe provides the opportunity for students to engage hands-on with the factors that affect the operation of a small business.

The Design Corps mission is to provide socially or environmentally conscious organizations with quality pro-bono design services, while exposing students to professional experience and the rewards of using their skills in the service of a good cause.
