Student Prize for a Sustainable Future: Register by Nov. 1

Encourage Your Students to Collaborate and Build a Better Future

Open to undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate students worldwide, Wege Prize 2022 is a global design competition that speaks to your students’ motivation to rethink the way we produce and consume, to redesign the way economies work, and to build a better future.

Throughout this multi-phase competition, collaborative student teams work across disciplines to develop solutions to a complex, “wicked” problem of their choosing that can help power the transition from a linear economic model to a circular economic model.

Teams compete for $65K USD in total cash prizes while engaging in a valuable learning experience guided by multiple feedback loops with jurors who are experts in the circular economy, sustainable development, design thinking, materials science, user experience design, biomimicry, and more.

Do you know students who would be interested in this opportunity? Learn more at the links below, and encourage them to form a team and apply by November 1, 2021 for consideration.
