IDEO’s Climate Change Video Challenge

If you’ve got a vision for what a human-centered sustainable future might look like and a video camera, you could end up hanging out at IDEO* with a check for $3,000.

IDEO and DESIGN 21 just launched a video challenge as part of its Living Climate Change Initiative. The initiative was launched last fall with a goal of extending the dialogue beyond policy and politics and toward inspiring, human-centered scenarios that create new possibilities for business and society “Living Climate Change is an open invitation to designers and non-designers alike to think creatively about an issue that impacts us all,” says Jennifer Leonard, IDEO designer and co-editor of “Our hope is that it will stimulate the kind of dialogue that creates community, supports optimism and inspires new choices.”

The video contest is open to anyone, and the judging panel will include our own David Kelley.
