In the design brief, we shared examples of a platforms that amplify existing ideas to improve engineering. Here are some more. 1. Infrachallenge 2020, here is the winners from their 2020 call out. https://infrachallenge.gihub.org/infrachallenge-2020/ (scroll to the bottom) 2. Another interesting one is the Ashen Awards, https://ashden.org/climate-champions/international-winners/ 3. Finally, TED talks is another cracking resource to showcase interesting people, causes and ways of thinking too. https://www.ted.com/talks

Hope you are all beginning to explore the brief and framing of the Designathon. How are you getting on? Why not check on Netflix's documentaries to ease you into analysing the context? There is a good one 'Brave New World' that is about the water crisis, and highlights the role of engineering technologies and need for innovation. Worth a watch! Netflix - and I'm sure other providers :) - also have some other interesting documentaries, like David Attenborough's 'A life our our planet' or even Zac Efron's 'Down to Earth' highlights some of the impacts and opportunities with new technologies/ ways of thinking. Do you recommend any others?
