It is organized every two years with the oversight of our President and Executive Board and the participation of an esteemed global jury of educators, design practitioners, and subject matter experts.
The competition honors the Kyoto Design Declaration legacy (2008), which champions the responsibility of designers for building sustainable societies. Since 2020, the Cumulus Green competition program has been closely aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted by the United Nations with a universal call to action to help reimagine a better future for everyone by 2030.
Every edition of Cumulus Green is connected with one of the SDGs to leverage designers’ agency in accelerating progress towards the SDG targets. To learn more about Cumulus Green, click the button below.
