Call for Entries: The Living Climate Change Video Challenge

Design 21 and IDEO have joined forces to host the Living Climate Change Video Challenge.

For details see below:

From Press Release:
Looking to inspire new choices through positive, design-centered thinking, IDEO – a global design and innovation firm – launched the Living Climate Change initiative last fall. Its goal is to extend the dialogue beyond policy and politics and toward inspiring, human-centered scenarios that create new possibilities for business and society. Now IDEO is partnering with DESIGN 21 – a popular online platform topromote design for the greater good – to create the Living Climate Change Video Challenge. People of all ages are asked to craft videos that envision a sustainable future as society moves along the path toward reduced carbon emissions.

“Living Climate Change is an open invitation to designers and non-designers alike to think creatively about an issue that impacts us all,” says Jennifer Leonard, IDEO designer and co-editor of Livingclimatechange.com. “Our hope is that it will stimulate the kind of dialogue that creates community, supports optimism and inspires new choices.”

According to DESIGN 21 Founder, Haruko Smith, “We are thrilled to partner with IDEO on this social design project because we both believe that smart design can solve real-world problems on a global scale.” Smith adds, “As a joint venture between Felissimo and UNESCO, DESIGN 21 is guided by the premise that education, science, technology, and culture are critical tools to disseminate knowledge, create awareness and foster dialogue. Hopefully, this discussion will motivate designers
to rethink the future.”

Thanks Christine for the heads up.
