The Green Concept Award is directed to students and graduates, but since this year also at start-ups and established companies. The focus will be even more about learning, feedback and networking porspectiely.
We provide young designers with guides and workshops to prepare their concept for the submission. This gives them additional know-how and inspiration to expand their design competencies to the areas of business model and sustainability. Next year, we will further intensify the participants' support after the submission to help us move from concept to reality.
Everyone in the Selection who is not interested in starting, exploiting or disseminating their concepts are invited to use the events to present themselves and their work and have look for contacts.
