creativity in the sustainable daily life

 

The Korean-based platform began as Seoul declared the ‘Human City Design Seoul’ in 2018, embracing the demands of the times for a sustainable urban environment where all citizens can enjoy a creative life overcoming the problems they face. In order to include a wider range of creative examples of sustainable daily life for a better future, the name was changed to ‘Seoul Design Award, for Sustainable Life.’ In 2023, the competition continuous to grow, focusing on sustainability through urban changes. The competition pays attention to design projects in various fields that contain regional backgrounds, processes, results, and visions, and widely publicizes how the projects’ impact, innovation, and inclusiveness are realized for people and society.

The competition seeks a better tomorrow through design by gathering and spreading efforts of designers and organizations all over the world who are armed with creativity and leaving positive impact. A jury consisting of international design experts, amongst them designboom co-founder Birgit Lohmann, aims to do just that, by overviewing the projects with UNESCO’s SDGs in mind, and the following criteria: Does the theme deal with issues of public design for harmony and sustainability in daily life?; Does it contribute in presenting a vision of a culture and civilization where humanity and the environment coexist?; and Will the project resolve issues through participation and collaboration with potential for global expansion and sharing?
