In honor of World Disaster Risk Reduction day, the Noun Project is working with the experts from the global disaster preparedness center and the American Red Cross to host an iconathon on the topic of urban disaster preparedness. The icon set that will be developed will be used for any number of applications including mapping, websites and publications. These icons will help the American Red Cross and the rest of the humanitarian community communicate important disaster preparedness ideas graphically.
The iconathon will be hosted at the historic American Red Cross national headquarters on Saturday, October 13th to coincide with the international day for disaster reduction and the official launch of the global disaster preparedness center (GDPC).
If you have a passion for designing, getting engaged with your community, helping build a better planet, and being creative while collaborating with great people - you should come!
Participants include educators, non-profits, civic leaders and volunteers, government officials and designers. Iconathons are specifically designed to let the public participate in the design process and to further increase their understanding of the civic topics they engage with. You do not need to know how to design or draw in order to participate
