Businesses around the world are reeling from the impacts of COVID-19. Many now face challenges across all aspects of their organization to continue their business in this new climate.
To follow physical distancing, many educators scrambled to adjust, and where possible, take learning into the home. However, not all families can access these new systems for online learning.
The social innovation challenge addresses the need to maintain a sense of community and mental well-being during this time of crisis. Ensuring social security is difficult when distancing is necessary.
Health is holistic and as we isolate at home, other social and economic issues around health and wellness have presented themselves, especially with varied circumstances within homes.
