HELLO OUR NAME IS... Our company name came about accidentally. During one of our first meetings while we sorted out details about the firm, we decided to start brainstorming names, starting with a somewhat juvenile method. We put all of our members’ initials together to try to form some sort of word out of them when Taylor paused and said, “Why don’t we just call ourselves “Initial”?” We unanimously agreed that Initial was the name for us, and one that we all loved. With the bias of a solid idea already, we continued to brainstorm other name possibilities that played with “Initial,” our initials, the word “initial” in different languages, and so on. One language that offered an interesting translation for “ongoing” was Swedish. With our two favorites in mind, we continued to the next stage of sketching out a logo for the words “Oandlig” and “Initial.”

WHAT WE LOOK LIKE

11

OUR IMAGE We created a couple of logo renditions with the two names, but it rapidly became evident that Initial would be the winner. Oandlig was not giving us very much inspiration for our logo so we stopped forcing it and moved forward with our favorite iteration of Initial to encompass all the feedback we received from our colleagues and friendly competitors. In brainstorming logo ideas for “Initial,” we tried to interpret it in a variety of ways. Initial made us think of the line for a signature or initials on a contract that reads “initial here” or is marked with an “x” under the line. We chose to visualize this concept and played with the line weight, font, and positioning of the elements and agreed that the logo should be simple, elegant, and clean. We wanted something that could be universally understood, but something that would not be misread by potential clients.


WHAT WE LOOK LIKE MEET THE FIRM

WHAT WE LOOK LIKE

13

WE LOOK LIKE At Initial we are about forward thinking innovation. Our logo needed to represent a process and a movement. The semiotics of the power button is significant because it signifies the beginning of a method. Our logo uses a rendition of the IEC 5009, standby symbol, that can be most commonly seen on personal computers. The importance about this symbol compared to other power symbols is that this represents the act of switching from stand by to on. At Initial even when we are not actively working we are always learning, collecting, transcribing, looking and listening. We are not your average design company. Our work is never done. The process is forever.

HOW WE THINK

OUR DESIGN PROCESS When it came to deciding on our design process, we began by looking at industry leaders to analyze existing processes. We noted all of the processes that caught our eye and began to narrow them down. As shown on the opposite page, we highlighted terms that appealed to us the most.

All of the circles are the same size, with the exception of “Inspire,� which is slightly larger to show the projected scope of the number of people we expect to reach. The smaller circles between the phases of our design process become progressively smaller to indicate the narrowing focus of our proposal.

PROBLEM STATEMENT

21

PROBLEM STATEMENT THE PROBLEM Enslavement, one of the oldest professions in the world, is still in full swing as today there are approximately 30 billion people enslaved. This is more than at the height of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade where people were taken from Africa and transported primarily to the colonies in North and South America. Despite the many acts to abolish slavery throughout history, an additional 300,000 people are trafficked each year helping fund the most profitable industry in the world. Of that number 80% are female and over 150,000 are children. The majority of these women and children, approximately 70%, enter the sex trafficking segment of human trafficking specifically. Human trafficking has become a $32 billion industry, easily surpassing profits from drug trafficking, gun trafficking, and terrorism around the globe. WHAT IS BEING DONE Awareness and education are two vital tools needed to help reduce the number of people who fall prey to this horrific business. There are various positive initiatives in motion today to combat human trafficking, including social networking platforms, psychological and legal support for victims, and artistic directives to encourage general awareness. For example, DNA Foundation uses a program developed by Microsoft toanalyze and track hidden copies of photos and videos showing pre-pubescent children being sexually exploited. Additionally, Journey is an artistic movement to raise awareness of human trafficking by creating an installation that allows guests to walk through shipping containers and experience the “journey� of being trafficked. Not For Sale is also in the fight to end slavery. They use multiple platforms and use campaigns to raise awareness about the problem. AREAS OF OPPORTUNITY Although these programs have contributed to the increased social acknowledgement surrounding the issue, incremental shifts in government action, and have begun to encourage people to think about finding a possible solution, much still needs to be done to prevent the trafficking from occuring and to protect current victims. Most of these programs fail to initiate any sort of action to actually re-abolish slavery and reduce the initial demand for human slaves. These programs and campaigns only touch upon the surface problems of raising awareness about human trafficking and do not posses a necessary element of transparency that would allow donnors to understand and measure how these initiatives are actually helping victims.

THE ASSIGNMENT: SOCIAL MEDIA, SOCIAL IMPACT, SOCIAL GOOD The Design and Business of Social Responsibility, Ethics, Management and Social Good. We will use the design process to explore both urban and universal humanitiarian, social and cultural issues. We will explore the power of words and ations upon each of us. We will try and understand and identify, via one of our greatest gifts of the human experience- design, and empathy, understanding and helping one another. We will first look at ourselves, our personal and family backgrounds, local, national and international news and contemporary and world changing issues. We look to understand as many existing forms of expression via web, text, video, object/product, experience, environment, presentation or promotion. We will look to identify opportunities where we can contribute to help raise awareness, understanding and need locally here in NYC and beyond. Our work this semester will use the topics of, Responsibility, Love, Empathy, Influences and Emerging or New Materials, Processes and Technologies.

What does all this even mean ? WHAT WE FOUND All these sketches did in fact lead us closer to an area of focus. After constant reshuffling and attempts to consolidate we took a step back and noticed a pattern; all our opportunity areas fell under 6 subject headings. As you looked through them you probably realized it yourself but most of our sketches were about: Egypt, internet, flooding, children, education and healthcare. As you can see in the sketch across, each subject heading has three-four sub sections, sometimes connecting to another subject area.


CONSOLIDATING DISCOVER

50

We have to narrow down even more. WHAT CONSOLIDATING WE FOUND Because we had so many different categories, we chose to group them into three main areas: Human Trafficking, Education, and Water. Most of our previous sketches and research were able to fit within these three categories, thus essentially we reorganized into bigger ideas. Social Impact, Social Media, Social Good


51


CONSOLIDATING DISCOVER

52

First attempt at focusing.

1. EDUCATION We chose to focus on education, because it was an area that encompassed many of our ideas. We interpret education as the learning that occurs both inside and outside of schools by individuals of various ages. A major issue we found when we looking at the current events we researched was the lack of preparedness and knowledge the general public had about numerous problems including, but not limited to, disasters, diaper need, and health care. While education can refer to all age groups, we found that the lack of education was most prevalent among younger audiences between the ages of 5 and 18.


53

2. WATER

3. HUMAN TRAFFICKING

Water was given its own category due to the abundance of problems with conservation, access to clean water, and other issues that result from natural disasters. Our aim was to come up with solutions regarding shortage, surplus, and sanitation of water. For example, the copious amount of standing water can pose serious health risks to those around them due to the bacteria that is harbored within them. We planned to compose a learning kit for children and adults alike to safely and effectively navigate around these obstacles.navigate around these obstacles.

While human trafficking was not in our initial opportunity areas, the subject arose after we discussed awareness with regards to education. We were all instantly attracted to it. In this section we hoped to focus on spreading awareness and creating new initiatives that could help existing or potential victims..

We had to try again... REFOCUS As evidenced by our brainstorming pages in the previous stage, we came to a stand still with water, but had multiple ideas for education and human trafficking. As a result, we decided to refocus our research once again. This time we put Education and Awareness as our main topic and from there derived three divisions of possible topics; Human Trafficking, Health and Current Crises. We brainstormed new concepts and ideas for these three fields that can be linked to Awareness and Education and ended up with thirteen main ideas.s.

NETWORKING PORTAL This website acts as a sort of networking site between those who need help (i.e. those who are enslaved, those concerned about family members, etc) and those who have the means to help (i.e. those who have ample funds, time, or other resources). The website would allow for these different groups of people to connect and find means of solving the greater issue of human trafficking, whether through direct donations, designing campaigns, or other methods. The image above to the right illustrates how those groups of people would be connected through the website.

AD CAMPAIGN

TRAFFIC JAM

WHERE AM I GOING?

The Swing Set is predominantly a guerilla marketing campaign designed to increase awareness about human trafficking especially with children. Information will be placed the seat of a swing set where parents will look before or after picking up their children. We feel like this will be a perfect place to advertise such projects because it is in a critical spot of security for parents and children alike.

Traffic Jam is an awareness campaign for human trafficking. At a red light at an intersection on the road, “enslaved� people would jump out of a truck and hand out some kind of collateral to people nearby (pedestrians & passengers). The collateral would lead them to visit a website, or donate or give them more information. Traffic Jam brings the idea of human trafficking to life in a way that leaves people talking.

Where am I going is also an awareness campaign that involves QR codes to educate the public. QR codes on campaign t-shirts lead people to take a picture and then tell them a human trafficking story making the person wearing the t-shirt the persona. The code could forward them to a website, a donation link, a simple story anything that could educate and raise awareness about the subject.

COMMUNITY PLAN This community plan aims to provide a key transition for senior citizens who would feel more comfortable living in an area within close proximity to restaurants, medical services, friends, and nature. Because senior citizens typically move from homes directly to hospice care centers, many senior citizens feel their rights are being taken away from them. This proposed community aims to ease that tension and provide senior citizens with a safe and friendly community. Social Impact, Social Media, Social Good

SWAPPING LIVES

HEALTH PORTAL

In today’s society we sometimes seem to be rebelling against the abundance of information that surrounds us on the Internet. While we still want access to this information, it seems that experiential learning is the most effective. The idea of swapping lives comes from the sustainability d ​ iscussions in our era. What if we, using an educational tool, could virtually swap lives in order to help people in crises?

This is a concept connecting information and people. It involves bringing health and awareness between people, lives, businesses, and institutes. Using an informational platform, health issues could be solved. Today, despite the abundance of information available to us, the biggest problem is finding pertinent information. Many people do not get the treatment they need, because of their lack of information. This platform is a way for people to come together and help each other. Also during crises – it can work as a platform for organization to help maintain active projects.

‘123’ ESCAPE A big part of disaster preparedness is having an escape route for all households; however, most families do not sit down to plan one out because they do not think they need it. ‘123’ Esape turns this necessary activity into an interactive game either through an activity book or as an iPad application. If children are prepared they can initiate action from their parents.

Social Impact, Social Media, Social Good

FRIENDS NO MATTER WHAT ESCAPE DEVICES Since the recent financial crisis, some schools have set up support groups for kids whose families were severely affected. The support groups provide a way for children to learn about why they may be forced to leave their current school and friends if their parents can not find a way to tell their children. Friends No Matter What is an educational tool that connects children who are going through similar family experiences to try to help them understand the economic crisis. As they are virtual relationships, the kids do no worry about leaving these friends, which provides a stable relationship.

Education in the 21st century has become far more than reading and arithmetic. Today, environmental, financial, and human rights disasters are occurring everyday and our goal is to enlighten and empower global citizens to fight back against these issues.


61

HOW?

One challenge Initial had was creating a way for us to market and publicize our services and findings to reach a larger demographic. By developing researching and applying it to campaigns to act locally, we will be able to resonate with consumers on a more personal level.

WATER FOR US

FLOOD RE-ENACTMENT

Clean water shortages are prevalent in many third world countries, especially with the recent flooding that has occurred. Water For Us is a campaign that makes use of the excess of clean water available to us in developed countries by providing some method of filtration or purification, such as a filter straw or sun-powered purifier, to a third world resident with each purchase of a bottle of water in the United States.

The recent surge in flooding that has resulted from the excessive amount of rainfall, hurricanes, and earthquakes have come to cause health complications and food and water shortages in addition to leaving thousands homeless. Flood Reenactment is a campaign that lets people witness first hand what these floods are like in an effort to educate them about and help to provide aid for those in need. The reenactment could take place in a public park or area similar to Union Square in New York or in some sort of demonstration for school children. Flood reenactment employs experiential design.

How we decided on human ficking traffi HUMAN RIGHTS Trying to consolidate our ideas into one direction proved extremely difficult. We decided to take a step back and look at a more general topic that could encompass all of our ideas. We decided to look at Human Rights in general and found the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights. We individually went through the articles enlisted here and noted those that we were most drawn to. From the 30 articles in the declaration, we were initially drawn to 5: articles 3, 4, 5, 25 and 26.

Article 5 stood out to all of us This article stood out to us because it deals with the most condensed reason why human trafficking is illegal and immoral. No one should have to be subjected to actions that diminish their natural human rights and dignities. The victims of human trafficking are robbed of freedoms and liberties and will and are devoid of a basic healthy living and working environment.

JOURNEY

Social Impact, Social Media, Social Good


81

ABOUT: Journey is a collaboration between the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and actress Emma Thompson aiming to raise awareness about the current issue of global human trafficking. The collaboration resulted in an art installation that would be transported around the world to showcase the story of a young woman, named Elena, who traveled from her home country of Moldova to England when she was eighteen. Elena was promised a job and a future in the UK, but when she arrived she was instead made into a prostitute. The installation consists of seven shipping containers that were welded together and refurbished to illustrate a different part of Elena’s journey being trafficked. Individual artists interpreted parts of her journey and designed the insides of the containers to reflect that part of the journey.


+ -

THE GOOD Innovative and captivating art installation inspires human interaction and deeper personal connection THE BAD The initiative doesn’t give many opportunities for people to share, connect and network with others who are passionate about Human Trafficking.


CASE STUDIES

83

ANALYSIS Journey by Emma Thompson is an art installation that allows viewers to experience a “typical� day in the life of a trafficked person working as a sex slave. Visitors are deeply effected by the deplorable conditions in which these victims live and work in against their will. The experience works to encourage interest and outrage by viewers. We admire the individual and personal connection that the project proposes, but hoped that the follow up element was more apparent.

STOP! LEND A HAND Social Impact, Social Media, Social Good


ABOUT: Stop is a collaboration between ECAT International, Somaly Mam Foundation, and The Body Shop to raise both awareness and resources globally for the trafficking of children. The campaign has multiple levels with each organization contributing at each. The Body Shop is the campaign’s portal to the public; the store created their “Soft Hands, Kind Heart Hand Cream” to raise money for ECAT while the “Bag For Life” collects proceeds for Somaly Man. In addition to the product there is an online petition for a “safe harbor” law to offer support instead of prosecuting victims of sex trafficking.


+ Social Impact, Social Media, Social Good

THE GOOD By aligning themselves with a retailer that already targets similar demographics, participators in the initiative should take a more personal interest in the campaign. THE BAD Not much transparency in the effectiveness of the donation and the signing of the petition.


Stop! Lend a hand does an excellent job of aligning itself with a retailer whose prime demographic is most closely related to the potential victims of human trafficking. The type of products sold, including lotions, soaps, and tote bags, make it easier for the common person to help fight Human Trafficking and helps to spread the word about the problem. However, similar to other campaign, users lack specific details about how exactly their money is helping to end human trafficking.

ABOUT:

Not For Sale is an organization that works across the United States and Internationally to raise awareness about the global issue of human trafficking. It helps victims through funding raised from its website and helps raise awareness by providing a platform for visitors to discover and record reports of human trafficking. Not For Sale approaches the larger issue of human trafficking by breaking it down into branches of work so as to attract the largest, most broad audience interested in helping to re-abolish slavery. The organization uses “Smart Activism� and various types of campaigns to spread awareness of the issue.


CASE STUDIES

FAST FOR FREEDOM This campaign encourages people around the world to fast together on one day and donate however much money they would normally have spent on food that day to Not For Sale. The money raised by the organization would help investigate human trafficking and help survival victims to restart their lives after slavery.

THE BAD While there is an attempt to allow those who donate to understand where their money is going to, it is not exhibited in detail and could be more transparent.

ANALYSIS The Not for Sale campaign brings people together through an online platform to fight human trafficking. The platform makes it easy to form meetings, rallies and promotional events. What we love the fact that Not For Sale caters to a variety of demographics with their many campaigns, but wish they had a more transparent donation process so those who donate knew where their money was going.

5 DAYS OF FREEDOM

Social Impact, Social Media, Social Good


ABOUT: 5 Days of Freedom is a campaign that encourages children to make a difference by empowering them with the freedom to act. The campaign runs for 5 days where young people around the world host various awareness shows, fundraisers and a Freedom Fest. 5 Days of Freedom is a Free The Children Campaign but unlike other campaigns, Free the Children does not determine how it is carried out. The organization simply gives a variety of resources to empower the children to bring to life their own ideas of freedom. 5 Days is unique, because no two ideas are the same and yet all of them together can make an impact.


CASE STUDIES DISCOVER

98

ANALYSIS 5 Days of Freedom is a week long social project designed to promote human rights and the observation of freedom. It is a very specific idea that gives a young people around the world the opportunity to organize projects in their local schools and community centers. We would have liked to see some sort of consistency in the model so the quality and impact of the work was stronger regardless of where in the world the initiative took place.


-

THE BAD Because the initiative allows customization, there are often issues of disorganization and inconsistency.

THE GOOD Allows people from various backgrounds to make an impact on a local level that works together with other communities around the world.

DNA FOUNDATION

Social Impact, Social Media, Social Good


101

ABOUT: The Demi and Ashton Foundation (DNA) works to eliminate the demand for sex trafficking and focuses particularly on eliminating the demand for child sex slavery. The foundation operates on multiple levels, connecting with both victims and the local community to devise ways to raise awareness about the issue. DNA believes that the central driver behind human trafficking is consumer demand, and thus strives to change the behavior of the individuals who are engaging in it.

REAL MEN CAMPAIGN

One of DNA’s larger initiatives was The Real Men campaign launched in partnership with the Novo Foundation and leading technology companies such as, Microsoft, Google, Twitter, Facebook and Square. The campaign looks for men who are willing to stand behind the statement “Real men don’t buy girls.” The technological coalition is working together to create solutions to end presence of human trafficking online. Microsoft has created a software called Photo DNA which helps online service providers to locate inappropriate images of underage sex slaves and then proceeds to remove them from the site before they go viral and spread across the world.

Social Impact, Social Media, Social Good


ANALYSIS This campaign makes it easier to track where underage photos come from so that criminals posting the images can be prosecuted. However, the “Real Men Don’t Buy Girls” advertising campaign is not effective at attacking human trafficking on a deeper level.

+ -

THE GOOD: The technological collaboration with Microsoft is innovative and effective at recognizing underage children in photos and notifying law enforcement personnel. THE BAD The campaign with Ashton Kutcher is not effective at addressing the issue on a deeper level or following through with the campaign.

LILJA FOREVER

Social Impact, Social Media, Social Good


ABOUT: Lilja Forever is a film made by Lucas Moodysson in 2002. It tells the story of a 16-year-old girl from Lithuania who was sold as a sex slave in Sweden after her mother abandoned her and left for America. The young girl sold herself in the streets and was picked up by a pimp involved in organized human trafficking. The pimp removed her to Sweden and forced her to take part in violent sex acts. Unable to ask for help or run away, Lilja ends up killing herself. This film tells her story.

THE BAD There is no opportunity for viewers to follow up with the cause.

THE GOOD Because this story is told through film it is accessible to everyone.

107

ANALYSIS Lilja forever is a documentary that portrays the emotional effects that human traffecking and abuse can have on a young girl. The movie was a good way to catapult someone into the world of these victIms although a follow up component would have been ideal.

Developing our design criteria PROTOTYPING After careful analysis of previous initiative and design thinking strategies we identified positives and negatives from each. We used this criteria to come up with the deliverable that would available to potential clients. Our main goal was to use a advertising and marketing initiatives that provoked human emotion and inspired change we also wanted to have a supreme sense of transparency in all donation processes. We believe that the following prototypes encompass these goals.

PROTOTYPING STRUCTURE Before we started we drew out a frame of our prototyping structure. Our 3 main touch points are: awareness, donations, teach/ prevent.


HUMAN TRAFFICKING: PROTOTYPING

AWARENESS

TAKE AWAY

Phase 1: We want to raise visibility and comprehension surrounding the current Human Trafficking Problem.

Phase 2: The viewer of our campaigns can become further involved with the organization through various social networking channels.

PLATFORM Phase 3: This online destination is a culmination of all campaigns and initiatives that we have developed for the increased awareness and abolishment of Human Trafficking.

AWARENESS Through various guerrilla art installations and campaigns the general public can be better informed about this issue.

Social Impact, Social Media, Social Good

By using these social networking tools the viewer becomes more engaged in the campaign as a whole as opposed to just one part. Connectivity and transparency for the public is our goal.

DONATE Phase 4: Users can donate money to allow us to implement the curriculum and educate girls about the dangers of human trafficking.

CURRICULUM Phase 6: The lesson plans for this stage will include the courses, lectures, and interactive activities for our target audience.:

DONATE People who log onto the platform have an increased opportunity to learn and connect with others who are involved.

Users can donate money to allow us to implement the curriculum and educate girls about the dangers of human trafficking.

Using real world and familiar examples we can make the human trafficking prevention more comprehensive and relateable.

EDUCATION

FOLLOW UP

Phase 5: Having the public learn about this problem is not enough; we must contribute to educate the people who are most at risk about the dangers to combat the source of the problem.

Phase 7: To make sure the people who donates can feel engaged in the process - we need to innovate a method to increase transparancy.

PREVENTION Advertising and education will happen at various places where girls are either most at risk or where they are most influenced. Whether these girls are at school, shopping with friends, or watching T.V Initial will be there informing and empowering.

The transparancy will be created through adonation tracker that will measure the donation made and follow it every step of the way until implementation of curriculum is finished.

How will our system work? SYSTEM MAP The three main touchpoints have their respective subgroups that people will pass through. These subgroups define key areas that trace a single persons experience and level of involvement in the system as a whole. The phase boxes along the top state our intentions for the phase while the boxes across the bottom say how we intend to bring them to life.

These are great ideas right? But WHO are they for? KEY PERSONAS Before we could select which prototyping ideas to take further and test we had to determine who the potential users and stakeholders in our system would be. We divided our key personas into two parts: those who would be affected by the public campaign, and those who would be involved in the school curriculum. We identified their demographics, psychographics and individual traits that made them suitable for the particular area in the system map they would be a part of.

1. GENERAL SURVEY

To gain greater insight into the awareness level about human trafficking from our target audience we distributed a general survey via viral sources. We asked various questions regarding the location, victims, and motives of human trafficking. We received a wide range of answers from various demographics to better help us design and market our initiatives. This survey was one of the instances that we used quantitative data to help tailor our deliverables to the general consensus of the population.

2. FOCUS

QUESTIONNAIRE In order to create an effective method of spreading awareness about human trafficking to prevent it from happening, we first had to understand every aspect of our potential victim’s day-to-day lives. We created a focus questionnaire to highlight possible areas in which we could intervene to make a difference. By stepping in the points at which potential victims are most vulnerable, our campaigns will be more influential. The girls we interviewed were pre-teens from the greater New York area. Our focus group served to give us an idea of the types of music, television, stores, and websites that they associate with.

The findings helped us design “first-aid kits” for our customers to aid them in fighting human trafficking. By giving personalized kits for each demographic the rate of participation will increase and so will the effectiveness of our message.

For this campaign we surveyed over 76 people asking which scenario they would hypothetically prefer. Although people applauded the first campaign, which included women who are “for sale” standing in store windows, the majority of people ultimately favored the shoe installation in a public space. They cited it as being “very impactful when viewing it on such a large scale.” With evidence that the majority of people preferred the shoe campaign, we chose it as our final choice.

What did all this work lead to?


OUR SOLUTION Although these programs have contributed to increased social acknowledgement surrounding the issue, including incremental shifts in governmental actions, much still needs to be done to prevent trafficking from occurring and to protect current victims. Most of these programs fail to initiate an effective form of action to re-abolish slavery and reduce the demand for sex slaves. These programs and campaigns only touch upon the surface issues of raising awareness, but do not posses the necessary element of transparency that would allow donors to understand and measure how these initiatives are actually helping victims, and as a result continue to actively spread the word. Our solution is to educate and empower our audience in order to help reduce human trafficking. At Initial, we believe problems are most effectively solved at the source.

20 3


20 5 Interactive component on enclosed DVD

PROBLEM VIDEO At Initial, we believe that storytelling yields the most empathy and understanding from our clients. This is why we have developed a video documenting the story of a young teen that falls prey to traffickers. We want our audience to connect with the young woman by evoking a reflective perspective as they watch the video. True understanding and the willingness to carry on with a message stems from honesty and an emotional connectedness with victims of human trafficking. Our video can be viewed on the enclosed DVD.

It is the main portal for our donation platform, cultural blog, and information about our curriculum and events around the globe that have to do with encouraging a positive self image and empowerment for our audience. We named this website “Eyes Wide Open,� because we want to give our clients the tools they need to remain safe and connected in our global culture. Our participants are also able to remain aware of the many dangers they could face and the steps that can take to remain happy, safe, and healthy.

SHOE INSTALLATION In this scenario a prospective user of the campaign stumbles upon the art installation in Union Square. The copious amount of shoes sparks curiosity and they learn that each of the shoes represent a victim of human trafficking in the city. Inspired and motivated to learn more, they use their smart phone to scan the QR code and are taken to the www.EyesWideOpen.com web page. On the web page the user has the opportunity to donate to the cause so more installations can take place and a curriculum can be funded.

EYES WIDE OPEN: DONATION THE WEBSITE

The Website serves as the main communicative portal for our initiative. Links to more information, blog posts about current events, and tools to prevent human trafficking are available on our site. Our two main goals for this website are continuous education and involvement once people are active in our organization. We aim to keep people involved, inspired, and informed about our campaign so they can tell others about the work being done to reduce the reality of human trafficking.

THE DONATION Donations from people who are effected in some way by our campaigns are vital to the future of this project. The money collected is used to produce and implement the curriculum. Our main goal is to be transparent so users know where their money is going. We believe that anyone donating has a right to know where their money is going and how exactly it is being spent. When a person is more deeply involved in the donation process, they are more inclined to donate again when they see the positive effects their donation helped to make.

STUDENT FOLLOW UP In this final phase of our curriculum, students will meet four weeks later to recap on any replies they received from the victims they were in contact with. Additionally, we will discuss how students have taken the initiative to monitor their online profiles and behaviors in person. Providing students with time to understand how the class is pertinent to them will hopefully prove beneficial in this course and will give victims time to reply to the emails sent earlier in the semester.

What’s the future of Eyes Wide Open?


1-3 YEAR PLAN In the future, Eyes Wide Open aims to include both boys and girls in the curriculum in order to broaden the reach of the program and help further our progress in the re-abolishment of slavery. We hope to maintain relationships and form new relationships with schools around the country in order to implement our curriculum for at least one semester at each. With at least one person at each school supporting our initiative, our chances of successfully preventing sex trafficking will increase significantly. Further, with more awareness campaigns bringing in donations, our curriculum will be able to expand on a larger scale across the country once schools see how the program has become a vital tool in students’ personal development in other schools. Continuous growth and development of our program could act as a model for other groups to work together to fight human trafficking.

a journey towards awareness, empathy and change. Human trafficking has become a $32 billion industry, easily surpassing profits from drug trafficking, gun trafficking, and terrorism around the globe. This book takes you on a step by step journey through our research project in Design Development at Parsons School of Design tackling this specific problem. It was a 15 week project with the goal of exploring social media, social impact and social good.
