Quilt is an emergency ad-hoc communication network designed to assist with initial disaster-relief efforts and address social isolation in urban areas during the first 72 hours of a disaster. Pandemics, fires, earthquakes, floods—the world has seen a rising number of disasters impacting all of us. Quilt offers urban society a sense of agency to cope with such complex hardships. In the aftermath of a disaster, Quilt promotes positive social dynamics, connecting people who are willing and able to provide help with those who are less able. It connects the vast majority, who will generally be fine, with the vulnerable part of the population, who live alone, are disconnected, and are often forgotten.
