NL/Minato & What Design Can Do

SHIBAURA HOUSE has formed a partnership with What Design Can Do (WDCD), a design platform based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Our international design competition, ‘No Waste Challenge’ began on January 12th, 2021!

For six years, the ‘No Waste Challenge’ focuses on the issue of waste in the world — including Tokyo. We are looking for innovative ideas from designers, entrepreneurs, students and others from all over the world to reduce waste and reimagine current production and consumption cycles.

The application period will be open for about 3 months from January 12th to April 1st, 2021. Ultimately, the winning idea will receive prize money and support to help realize the idea.

WDCD is a platform that connects social issues and design. It began in the Netherlands in 2011. We are developing as an organization that connects ideas related to various themes such as climate change and immigration issues.
