HASHTAGS: #IYD2020, #HCDExchange, #Design4ASRH, #HCD, #ASRH

On August 12 we’re launching HCDExchange’s first annual International Youth Day convening! This event will bring together youth designers, advocates, and organizations — alongside more established HCD professionals, ASRH implementers, and evaluators — to share practices, learning, and evidence. This is a great opportunity to connect with each other, celebrate the range of people and organisations working in HCD+ASRH, and showcase the global and southern nature of our community.

Highlights will include:

  • Panel discussions and workshops
  • A virtual concert showcasing young artists from across sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia
  • The HCDExchange Creative Challenge — community-generated videos, visuals, and memes
  • The launch of the HCDExchange Design Fellowship program

Please register in advance. Our program runs for several hours to accommodate participants from different time zones. Feel free to log in to the Livestream at any point during the event.
