    The No Waste Challenge presented by What Design Can Do and the IKEA Foundation is now open for submissions. This global design competition focuses on addressing the enormous impact of waste and consumerism on climate change. They are looking for radical new ideas and design-driven solutions to reduce waste and rethink our entire consumption and production cycle.

    The No Waste Challenge asks designers to respond to one of three global design briefs. Each brief addresses a different aspect of the waste problem. The three briefs are: Take Less, Make Better and Handle Smarter.

    "Designers are in a unique position to change how things are made, and what they are made of," said Richard van der Laken, creative director of WDCD. "A growing number of creatives have already taken an active role in the transition to a circular economy, by experimenting with materials and processes, raising awareness, and inspiring vital new narratives around waste as a resource. But there is a lot more potential. Now more than ever, the design community must step up, own up and lead."

    There is no entry fee.
