Dear ITS Students,

Kyushu University, Faculty of Design, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Design Unit and Center for Designed Futures, is proud to announce the commencement of their 3rd SGDs Design International Awards 2021. It is part of university efforts to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

For this year awards, Kyushu University wants to join in as part of the world’s effort to achieve carbon neutrality.

Date: 16 October 2021 – Award Ceremony

Theme: Let’s Create a Carbon-Neutral Society: Think Big, Start Small, Move Fast

The rapid climate change affects the whole world, with extreme weather conditions such as drought, heatwaves, heavy rain, floods, and landslides becoming more frequent. The university needs to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to virtually zero, which is being called for in Japan and many other countries.

The objective of these awards is to recognize and encourage young, prospective students who can transform society and envision the future. At the same time, the university will share their solutions with everyone so that these solutions can be adopted to create a better society in the future. Kyushu University welcomes all students of various disciplines from any part of the world to explore innovative design solutions to solve this complex and urgent problem.

The application for the awards has started and will end on August 31, 2021, Japan Time. The flyer of the competition can be accessed here .
