No Waste Challenge - featuring expert guests
Our planet is drowning in waste. Every year we dump a massive 2.12 billion tonnes of it worldwide. This will only increase, unless we make some major changes – and fast.
We’re calling on all creatives, hackers and dreamers to submit bold solutions to reduce waste and rethink our entire production and consumption cycle. Will you join us?

IN PARTNERSHIP WITH DESIGN MANCHESTER & BRITISH COUNCIL
Doing Zero, devised by Design Manchester
and developed with Nairobi Design Week, is
about what we as individuals can do to help
save the planet.
It’s a collaboration between two inner-city neighbourhoods:
Kawangware in Nairobi, Kenya, and Harpurhey in Manchester, England.
They’re collaborating about is how the
climate emergency is affected by what we
grow and what we eat.
“Food that’s good for the planet, good for my
local community, and good for me.”
