Build The World Better
LATRA is a socially-innovative creative agency, working directly at the frontlines of global humanitarian, environmental and societal challenges. In response to the world’s currently largest humanitarian emergency, LATRA set-up an innovation lab inside a refugee camp in Lesvos, enabling world-class innovators, designers, makers, producers and social entrepreneurs, to co-create alongside the refugee community, technology-driven creative projects that directly respond to current and urgent field needs. LATRA’s vision is to BUILD THE WORLD BETTER, by empowering marginalized communities across the world, with technology, design and education, to address the adversities they and their communities face, and to become not just actors in their lives but directors of their future, creating communities which are inclusive, adaptive, sustainable and resilient.
For its innovative practice in Greece, LATRA was awarded the Intercultural Achievement Recognition Award by the Austrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (2018), won the International UNCOVER Design Prize (2018), and first place in the Global Be.Creative Competition (2017). LATRA is a member of the global UNICEF Design Pool, and has produced humanitarian design innovation projects in Greece, Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, South Africa & Qatar.
