#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.

Belgrade Design week unlike so may other city design events has a wonderfully essential vibe about it. Nothing pretentious in the air but big bags of energy and enthusiasm. It feels like the Serbs haven't already decided what design is and so are open and ready to riff off the ideas that come in to sharp focus over these precious days. The city itself has a gritty charm about it which complements the event perfectly.
