Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University’s (KCAD’s) Wege Center for Sustainable Design has announced the winners of Wege Prize 2016, the third iteration of the annual international competition challenging transdisciplinary teams of undergraduate students to design a product, service, or business model that can function within and facilitate a paradigm shift toward a circular economy, an economic model in which resources and capital are regenerative.
The five finalist teams in Wege Prize 2016 presented their bold ideas for the economy of the future to a judging panel of leading practitioners and advocates of design thinking and sustainability at the Wege Prize 2016 Awards, held on May 14 at KCAD. The teams’ solutions were evaluated on factors such as depth of research, technological and financial feasibility, alignment with circular economic principles, and potential for impact.
