Winners Make It Circular Challenge

Thirteen global startups showcase how to use design best as a ground principle to create a more sustainable society.

Our partner What Design Can Do (WDCD) has announced the thirteen winners of the Make it Circular Challenge, representing innovative strategies for building a more circular society. Tasked with selecting the winners was an international jury comprising twelve leading experts in design, climate action and entrepreneurship, including Arthur Huang (founder, Miniwiz), Bas van Abel, founder, Fairphone), and Corine Gray (Unreasonable Group).

The competition now enters an exciting new phase as finalists gain access to a €10.000 award and development training package by the Impact Hub, designed to launch their ideas into action.

The Make it Circular Challenge asked creative entrepreneurs worldwide to come up with circular products, services,
spaces and systems that would help us tackle the root of the climate crisis. Participants were encouraged to submit
their projects in one of five categories, representing key value chains and industries like consumer goods, packaging or food. The 13 winning projects are divided loosely among these categories, but also closely relate to the three fundamental aspects of circularity: designing to last, working with nature and using what already exists.

These are the winners:
