Entries by 31 October 2019
Final Presentations and Awards Ceremony on 14 March 2020
We welcome all students of various disciplines from any parts of the world to explore Innovative design solutions in solving complex social problems targeted by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals to help save the world.
Kyushu University, Faculty of Design, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Design Unit and Kyushu University Center for Designed Futures, is proud to announce the commencement of its Inaugural SGDs Awards 2019.
Society is increasingly raising its expectations for design. Problems targeted by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, which include such concerns as hunger, poverty, and the issue of food, may seem irrelevant to design, but efforts to solve them through design are materializing all over the world. The role of design is moving beyond “formative expression through color and shape” and is becoming a valid method to solve the issues faced by society.
The objective of these awards is to recognize and encourage young, prospective students who can transform society. At the same time, we will share their solutions with many people of the world and strive to utilize these approaches to create a better society in the future. We like to invite students from all disciplines to participate, share and be inspired through this contest.
