While immigrants and refugees face many challenges in their new urban lives such as language, access to services, employment, housing and cultural barriers; they also bring new energy to our cities and economy. Their success is our success. Displaced: Design for Inclusive Cities calls upon designers of all disciplines to apply the power of design thinking to the urgent need to welcome, support and empower urban immigrants and refugees.
