Прием заявок на участие в конкурсе "Нет отходов"


The No Waste Challenge is a global competition initiated by What Design Can Do (WDCD) in partnership with the IKEA Foundation.

WDCD is calling on creatives — both small hackers and big dreamers — to submit innovative solutions to reduce waste and to rethink the entire production and consumption cycle.

This global design competition focuses on the enormous impact of waste and consumerism on climate change. Designers and creative entrepreneurs around the world are invited to submit innovative solutions to reduce waste and to re-design the systems of extraction, production, and consumption to be less destructive — or even to make them restorative.

No Waste Challenge has two main goals:

        To make a significant contribution to the reduction of global warming (and keep the global temperature rise below 1.5 degrees celsius in accordance with the Paris Agreement) through minimizing greenhouse gas emissions and protecting biodiversity;

        To accelerate the transition to a fair and circular economy.


Next to this, all proposals are to be submitted in one or more of the following categories:

        Communications: Information design, speculative design, campaigns, packaging design, films, music and other verbal or non-verbal messages, digital or physical

        Products: Sustainable product design, fashion design, food design, material design (made industrially or in limited edition)

        Spaces: Interior design, architecture, landscape design and other forms of spatial design for the private or public sector, temporary or permanent

        Services & Systems: Digital or physical tools, services, platforms, programmes and infrastructures to influence human (and non-human) behavior and facilitate interactions
