Green Future Club - "Let's design the future"

Under the motto "Let's design the future", the Green Future Club wants to create a future in which all products are sustainable. Therefore, young participants of the Green Concept Award are specifically supported with workshops, mentors, matchmaking alternatives and media work. A cross-industry meeting with 150 international designers, founders and material experts who exchange views on the topic of sustainable design. This gives rise to many exciting projects to promote the sustainable development of materials, products and services.

Special exhibition MCBW 2022

There will also be a pop-up exhibition at Munich's Viktualienmarkt, where sustainable materials and prototypes will be presented. The focus is on the topic of circular design with concrete design applications. These are created through design, innovative processes and the rethinking of material flows. The works by 33 designers from 12 different countries are presented, which deal with six different themes. Materials, products and prototypes were designed for each and submitted to both awards.
