Many companies, governments, and individuals are beginning to take action as they become aware of environmental issues.
We are beginning to move away from a linear economy – where resources and energy are used in abundance, produced, and ultimately destroyed – to a circular economy where goods, raw materials and products are continually reused for new purposes.
As the transition to a circular economy is called for on a global level, FabCafe, a hub for the world’s creative community, and Loftwork, a creative company in Asia, are working with world leaders, companies, and designers to think about how to redesign a new society.
crQlr will provide opportunities for continuing encounters and innovation through four initiatives: online awards, events, hackathons, and projects. We believe that this community-centered design will serve as a means for collecting educated opinions. and for creating solutions to complex problems.
The “crQlr Awards,” for projects and ideas that design the circular economy,
received 204 entries from companies, organizations, startups, designers, and other organizations
from 24 countries around the world. Thank you very much for all the entries.
After a rigorous review by 19 Judges, the following over 50 projects have been selected
as the crQlr Awards 2021 winners. Please take a look at the ideas!
Here we present a selection of projects related to circular design
which FabCafe Global and Loftwork have been involved in.
Material meetups are held regularly through
the FabCafe Global Network at each FabCafe location!
Workshop for working with others to generate ideas which will realize a recycling-oriented society
Featured guest speakers at this event include Circular Award leaders who will act as judges for this award, as well as businesses and start-ups of all sizes that are blazing new trails in the circular economy. The speakers will discuss trends and examples of the circular economy.
The winning projects were selected from 204 entries from 24 countries around the world!
