Event Title

Far From Home

Description

Human beings are migratory creatures, since the beginning. As a collective we have traversed millions and millions of miles, and continue to do so. We have now separated ourselves into two systems of migration: one that moves by choice and one that doesn't. In our current era we are still experiencing the migration of entire countries. Reasons such as climate and war are the basis to this movement. By 2050, because of the consequences of climate change, the amount of climate migrants could reach the number of 200 millions refugees. Our solution to this as a collective has been the creation of refugee camps. Nowadays these are conceived as temporary settlements, usually managed by governments, the United Nations, international organizations or NGOs. Far From Home, responds to the questions raised by the Project Earth 2 competition: Is it possible to consider refugee camps as the cities of tomorrow As changing structures that can grow, adapt and develop Link to competition brief- https://www.projectearth2.org/citiesoftomorrow
