The Buckminster Fuller Institute announces the launch of the 2015 cycle of The Fuller Challenge through the public invitation to recommend a project that demonstrates a design strategy with significant potential to solve some of humanity’s most pressing problems.
BFI is looking for visionary social and environmental solutions from across the globe for “socially responsible design’s highest award” and a cash prize of $100,000.
Do you know of a project that demonstrates excellence in comprehensive problem solving and anticipatory design, please enter the project name and contact information via this link: RECOMMEND A PROJECT.
If you yourself are interested in applying, please register your intent by emailing [email protected].
The success and impact of The Fuller Challenge is amplified through partnership with our ever-growing international community—their on the ground expertise, their insights into the global system, and their deep alignment with the ethics of Buckminster Fuller and his challenge to "make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time through spontaneous cooperation without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone." We thank this network for their support and participation. And we look forward to hearing from you!
BFI is currently deep in the process of strategic planning for the coming Challenge cycle, so stay tuned for additions to the rich list of Catalyst Program benefits and opportunities.
