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?

Moderated by:

Dagan Cohen (What Design Can Do)

Panelists:

Wekesa Zablon (Circular Design Nairobi)

Sheila Suluve (Ukulima Tech)

Makena Mworia (Kenya Climate Innovation Center)

Community Collaborations

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.”
