#SUPPORT SERBIA AND BOSNIA

BDW joins the appeal of the most famous Serb – Novak Djokovic. Djokovic called for aid from the international community and is trying to do everything he can to get the word out. “We need help. This rain that is constantly falling for four days already is going to stop eventually and the rivers, the flood is going to back up. After that there’s a period of definitely a minimum of several months of recovery. People are without homes. We need as much help in any kind of way as possible from the world.”

The best Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic has criticized the BBC, CNN and other foreign media because, as he said, they are not covering flooding in Serbia sufficiently.
“There is a flood of biblical proportions. That’s why I feel the need to point it out wherever and whenever possible, because major international media such as CNN and BBC are under-reporting of what is happening in Serbia and Bosnia. This is one of the worst floods ever seen, many cities were evacuated, half of the country may not have electricity. It has to be shown to the world, we need help,” said Djokovic.

The Belgrade Design Week was the best design conference I have ever enjoyed – the specific spirit of the city in a kind of in between status, the rough tension which can still be felt ten years after the bombs, the pride and the looking for new orientation especially in the young generation – all this is giving the BDW a special flair far away from the current events of the global design circus. In addition the enthusiastic organizational team trying hardly but unsuccessfully to keep the program along the schedules, the informal exchange between the international speakers, the loss of any discipline, the parties on the river … what ever and how ever the interrelations between these aspects are working – it makes the BDW an unique, likeable, inspiring and productive event, I will never forget.
