The LeNSes Design Competition engages teams of young designers, students and recent graduates taking part in the challenge of innovating and creating Sustainable Energy for All.
Participants will tackle real-life problems of the African contintent and propose innovative solutions that contribute to create a more sustainable world. Participants will get worldwide exposure and benefit from being active contributors in an international network.
The competition’s objective is to design a sustainable Product-Service System that addresses key environmental and social issues [e.g. food production/consumption, clothing care, public spaces safety, mobility, education/learning, sanitation, sheltering or home activities] of a low and/or middle income community in an African context. The concept should be based on a Locally-based Sustainable Energy System, i.e. coherent with the promising models of Sustainable Product Service systems (S.PSS) and Distributed Renewable Energy (DRE).
