The Movin’On Sustainable Mobility Fund has announced the 2021 edition of its annual Movin’On Challenge Design competition — to celebrate, promote, publicize and give visibility to original creative thinking and innovation in mobility design.
The 2021 theme is: Respect: Ending Isolation and Conquering the Mobility Divide. Anyone interested in future mobility is eligible to enter and entrants are encouraged to have their entry tell a design story.
Three winners will be honored at a private reception during the Movin’On Summit, 1-3 June, 2021, in Montreal, where the winning entries will be displayed, and design portfolios reviewed by Challenge Design jurors and top designers.
Created by Michelin in 2001 to encourage and recognize creative design around the world, Movin’On Challenge Design is a prestigious global competition reflecting the importance of innovative design in the future of mobility.
Entries come from all over the world and include individuals, schools, and teams of transportation and mobility designers, including OEMs and suppliers, studios, students, teachers, artists, architects, engineers, and futurists.
More information about the theme for 2021 are available on the official website.
Age and disability can limit access to safe and affordable mobility for one of every four people in the world today, reducing joy and the ability to fully participate in, benefit from, and contribute to society.
The 2021 Movin’On challenge to entrants is to design a future with truly inclusive access to mobility, a future that breaks down barriers and increases the personal well-being and respect for all people.
Some things to consider:
- Age can impact the ability of both young and old people to access affordable and sustainable mobility.
- Disability can take many forms, both visible and invisible to the outside world.
- The combination of physical or emotional disability and lack of access to mobility often results in isolation, leading to further withdrawal from society.
Through its first 20 challenges, Michelin has received more than 14,500 entries from 134 countries.
