A special event at the Fellehus of the Nordic Embassies in Berlin
In cooperation with the Embassy of the Kingdom of Sweden, the Green Future Club hosted the Green Product Awards ceremony and an intensive learning and matchmaking event. The welcome by the Swedish Embassador and the founder of the awards was followed by insights, examples and outlooks on joint activities of jury members, partners and selected young designers of the Green Cells program co-funded by the IKEA Stiftung.
100 exclusive guests (winners, selected nominees, club members, jurors, ...) had a first block from 14.00 key-notes, examples of successful collaborations and pitches from international young designers. Afterwards, moderated thematic islands in Felleshus offered time to exchange experiences and get to know each other. The actual award ceremony started at 17:00, followed by drinks and finger food to make and deepen contacts. The winners came from Austria, China, Costa Rica, Denmark, France, Germany, Israel, Netherlands, Poland, Slovenia, United Kingdom and United States. Discover the winning products and concepts.
