“We’ll discuss what contributing to these design developments involves and explain how to take that first step of engagement. We aim to source problems identified from humanitarian staff, first responders and others who intimately know the problem; however, we have learned that, so far, an intermediary is needed on the ground to bridge the understandings of what’s possible with local manufacturing for solving humanitarian supply challenges. For us, this is Field Ready. It just gets more exciting from here, so join us on Thursday!”

Humanitarian Makers: uniting to support disaster response. We are makers – designers, engineers, technicians, logistics experts, supply chain gurus, and other professionals from around the world – who desire to create additional social impact with our expertise. We enjoy problem-solving and pushing the frontier on what’s possible. We refuse the status-quo.

Post-talk we’ll move to nearby rustic bar, Tempest, to chat over a beer. Tempest is at 431 Natoma St, San Francisco, CA 94103.
