Problem Statement

The problem we are focusing on is racism. Racism is a global problem and it is very prominent in adolescence. We asked how might we help this situation and reduce racism?


Customer / Problem

We identified that 1 out of 5 teenagers are racist and are influenced by parental views, stereotypes, media and lack education in this area.


Solution

We are creating a cultural festival to address racism and highlight different cultures cuisines, music, art and performances. We will do this by also providing interactive opportunities using QR codes and selfie areas.
