Social labs are emerging all over the world to tackle some of the world's most wicked problems. Human-Centered Design (HCD) is also being used to solve some of the world's most complex social challenges.
How are these approaches similar? How are they different?
Join us to explore these questions as Jumana Qamruddin and Will Schmitt from the World Bank present a case study on their work using HCD to reduce child malnutrition in Madagascar.
We will use the case study to compare and contrast HCD with social labs. We will also get a chance to provide valuable feedback to the World Bank team about their project. You do not need to be familiar with social labs or human-centered design to participate.
