Got an idea to improve waste management and recycling in South/Southeast Asia? Be part of the upcoming Circular Innovation Jam! Rather than “jamming” with music, Incubation Network is inviting participants to jam with their ideas and unique insights to solve ocean plastic pollution.
The Circular Innovation Jam seeks to develop innovative and inclusive solutions to advance local circular economies for plastics and effective waste management systems across South and Southeast Asia to reduce ocean plastic pollution.
The Circular Innovation Jam is a virtual design sprint that will bring creative minds together to collaborate and solve local waste management & circularity challenges.
Using tools drawn from human centered design, participants will focus on developing inclusive and gender-sensitive solution prototypes for regional challenge statements.
Winners will receive $5000 USD worth of support (financial and/or technical) from The Incubation Network to further advance the solutions to their highest potential.
- Reuse models / packaging
- Development or adoption of innovative reusable and environmentally-friendly packaging or mechanisms in households
- Waste systems
- Efficiency or effectiveness of existing waste collection, management & recycling systems, including the informal sector
- Prevention or reduction of plastic waste in rivers and waterways.
The challenge invites individuals and teams over the age of 18 regardless of gender, race, background or level of experiences to apply! All that is required is an interest in developing solutions to ocean plastic pollution, and a commitment to participate fully throughout the Circular Innovation Jam.
