The Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation has established an industrial design competition which will focus on the three pillars of the Second Nature Initiative: Marine Plastic Waste, Blue and Circular Economy and New Technologies.
We would like to source young designers (18-35 y.o.) candidates that will present a product with a strong design that incorporates the above ideas. An important factor in the selection process is that these ideas and products can evolve into a solid business proposal with a future and a place in the specific product area.
What the judges will be looking for:
An appealing design concept
A functional item that promotes environmental awareness while incorporating the idea of upcycling marine waste
An item that has the potential to evolve and find itself directly in the marketplace, as a sustainable business idea
The 3 winners will receive
2500 euros each
Mentoring and Assistance with furthering their brand from The People’s Trust
