Designing Cradle to Cradle Certified Products for the Circular Economy
The Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute has launched its first-ever Product Design Challenge in partnership with Autodesk supporting the Design-Led Revolution. The contest is open to design students and design professionals. Finalists could collect up to $4,000 in a cash prize.
To participate, you’ll need to complete the free, 1-hour online course Designing Cradle to Cradle Certified Products for the Circular Economy. Central to Cradle to Cradle® as a design framework is to eliminate the concept of waste—recognizing that all materials are valuable, finite, and when designed appropriately, can be used in infinite cycles.
Entries may be submitted starting immediately, and must be received no later than March 15, 2015. Prizes will be awarded in three categories (Best Student Project, Best Young Professional Project, and Best Use of Autodesk Fusion 360 Tool), and the top selection in each category will receive a $2,000 prize. Winners will be announced in April.
