Evrnu, which recycles cotton garment waste to create renewable fibre has been named as a 2016 semi finalist in the Fuller Challenge, a competition named 'Socially-Responsible Design's Highest Award'.

The Buckminster Fuller Institute invites designers, entrepreneurs, artists, scientists, architects, activists and planners from around the world to submit innovative solutions to some of humanity's most pressing problems.

The institute has shortlisted nineteen proposals as semi-finalists after rigorous review for adherence to the seven-point challenge criteria.

These criteria's include being visionary, comprehensive, ecologically responsible, feasible, verifiable, and replicable.

Evrnu's application has been through three rounds of vetting by the members of the challenge review committee, including analysis and evaluation by an interdisciplinary team of experts and advisors.

“Each of these projects deserve the attention of the world for their commitment to 'solving for system', an approach that takes an unusual degree of insight, patience, tenacity and courage,” the Institute's ED, Elizabeth Thompson said.

“Each is a remarkable example of the transformative power of individual initiative and provides much needed hope by demonstrating that solutions to our most entrenched problems are indeed at hand,” she added.

A $100,000 prize is awarded to support the development and implementation of one outstanding strategy. The finalists will be announced in August, and the winner in September. (AR)
