KICK-OFF: Guided by Chief Moderator Julia Cassim, the 24 Hour Design Challenge 2012's participant truly broke the ice in the kick-off session.
The third 24 Hour Inclusive Design Challenge was held this year from June 7-8 in Oslo as part of the European Business Workshops in Inclusive Design.
Over a period of 24 hours, teams of designers from different disciplines were asked to come up with inclusive solutions or products in response to the challenge theme: Digital Solutions, Products and Services and Communication and Marketing - the themes of the Workshop itself.
The purpose of the challenge is knowledge transfer between team participants and the conference as a whole. This is done by raising awareness, challenging designers creatively and helping the participants to acquire new forms of expertise within the field of Inclusive Design.

This is a unique opportunity to gather designers, industry and users who have not worked together before, and to establish new and long-lasting networks.
The participants was organised into four teams and information about the Challenge was given at an introduction workshop a day in advance (6 June). Each team was given a design brief at the start of the European Business Workshops in Inclusive Design on June 7, 2012, by facilitator Julia Cassim who also mentored the teams throughout the process.
At the end of the 24 hour period, the teams presented their results in a plenary session on the second day of the workshop event. There was two winners, one for the best idea and one for the best presentation, both voted by the audience. See winners and all teams here.
