Short description

Seoul Design Foundation recently has opened its global design award for sustainable life and invites designers who are actively shaping a brighter future in our ever-evolving world to take a part. In 2010, Seoul was designated a City of Design by the UNESCO Creative Cities Network, a program initiated to support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This designation marked the beginning of Seoul’s journey towards a sustainable future through collaborative design efforts among cities.

With the aspiration of advancing global sustainability through shared learning, the Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) in 2018 invited 20 cities worldwide to facilitate the exchange success stories. This effort led to the establishment of the ‘Seoul Design Award for Sustainable Daily Life’ in 2019. The award acknowledges designs promoting sustainable daily life that aim for harmony between people, society and the environment.
Eligible for entry are design projects in all fields realized within 5 years by designers and planners who contributed to a more sustainable and harmonious future between people and people, people and society, people and the environment, and people and nature.

Public/Shared: Public sector that can be shared with others
Creativity/Innovation: Creative, innovative problem-solving methods
Participation/Cooperation: Open to public participation, multi-sectoral and cooperative
