Economic Mobility in Marginalised Communities

2021-2022

Detroit has struggled with the problem of racial discrimination and segregation of marginalized communities, including people of color. 

 

The poverty rate in Detroit is three times higher than the national average and child poverty rates are upwards of 43%.

 

Economic mobility is a key focus area for city officials, yet the programs introduced are making little headway for most families who are losing ground with each passing year. 

 

Precious time they really cannot afford to lose. The city needs revitalization programs, backed by evidence and data to drive reform programs in healthcare, workforce, housing and revitalization, jobs and economy, and police.

 

The IDIEA Accelerator program will look at:

  • Developing solutions that can be deployed in Detroit to build the foundation skills in youth

  • Help youth find employment after being upskilled

Focus: #SDG13

Sustainable Fashion and Circular Economy

2021-2022

The #Copenhagen Fashion Summit #CFS has been heavily criticized by the sustainable fashion community for failing to put the spotlight on the plight of garment workers who are reeling under the worsening impact of lockdowns and #COVID19.

 

Over 2 million garment workers have lost their jobs and many manufacturers have not paid these workers their salaries since April, though they are multi-million dollar conglomerates.

 

The program looks at a solution and metrics-driven action plan that can support, effectively and profitably, the creative implementation of the circular economy. It will look at the innovation in recycled plastic fabrics and the potential for circular economy partnerships therein.
