Details

The Decent Rural Living Initiative (DRLI) Designation (think Design + Hackathon) invites design professionals, engineers, students, and innovators to propose innovative PPE solutions for agricultural workers in the tropics to improve their health and safety.

Mass-produced PPE is often unsuitable for use in the region, for a variety of reasons, ranging from the thickness and weight of materials and poor fitting to hot and humid weather conditions.

When workers are reluctant to use their PPE properly, the risk of injury and accidents on the job increases.

This Designathon is your opportunity to apply your skills to make a positive difference to our agricultural workers, making their working conditions simpler, safer, and healthier.

We want you to be creative. Your solutions may include physical design, material science or behavioural solutions to help workers better adhere to safety standards.

This Info Session is intended as a primer for prospective participants. Challenge owners will share insights about health and safety conditions on farms in Asia, and outline opportunity areas for designers to make a difference with their solutions.
