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 forcontinuing 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 are for projects that are helping to design the circular economy.
This year we received a massive 204 entries from companies,
startups and designers in 24 countries worldwide.
After a rigorous review by 19 judges, 63 projects were chosen for an award.
Let’s meet this year’s winners.
crQlr organizers FabCafe and Loftwork are involved in a range of circular design projects.
crQlr meetups and designathons are held regularly at FabCafes worldwide.
On December 1st and 2nd, 2021, the inaugural crQlr Summit brought together 16 of the award winners and 18 global judges for two days of feedback and discussion.
The winning projects were selected from 204 entries from 24 countries around the world!
We have been receiving a lot of inquiries about applications and we have decided to extend the deadline.
