After weeks of careful consideration, we’re thrilled to reveal the 33 nominees of the Redesign Everything Challenge. This year’s shortlist features creative proposals to redesign the world as we know it: from circular products and materials to climate-proof campaigns, spaces and services. Representing ideas from 17 different countries, these nominees will now move on to the final round of the competition. In May, we’ll find out which 10 most promising projects will be crowned this year’s winners, out of a total 557 entries worldwide.
