The What Design Can Do Challenge To Combat Sexual Exploitation Of Children

No Minor Thing

What can designers do to help combat the sexual exploitation of children? This is the question posed by What Design Can Do in collaboration with the Dutch Public Prosecutor’s Office (OM) and the Ministry of Justice and Security in a new, invitation-only challenge for twelve design teams and one design school.

In this challenge, the teams and school will have a chance to come up with new ways to tackle the sexual exploitation of children. This is a largely hidden problem that is difficult to combat. The OM therefore hopes that the participating designers can come up with fresh ideas and unexpected interventions. A range of experts and stakeholders will help participants to develop their ideas with the goal of actually implementing them.

To kick off this challenge the problem of sexual exploitation of children is discussed in a plenary programme during WDCD Live on 24 May, together with the participating designers, public prosecutors, experts, and victims.
