UK Design Challenge @Bett 23, London

In September last year, we launched the first Design4SDGs Design Challenge for UK schools, in partnership with Bett UK. The challenge was developed to give students more exposure to the UN SDGs, as well as encouraging them to come up with big ideas on ways to make a positive impact on the planet they will ultimately inherit.


The teams were asked to choose 1 of 3 SDG challenges we created, come up with a solution and record a pitch video outlining their idea. These videos were then scored out of a possible 80 points, with the top 4 from each challenge making it to the finals, hosted live at Bett. The standard of the pitch videos was unbelievably high, with a lot of research and thought going into each solution.


On Friday 31st March, the live finals took place on the Arena Stage at Bett, in the ExCeL, London. All of the finalists did themselves and their schools proud, presenting the potential positive impact of their designs in front of a large audience, as well as a panel of judges. Seeing such passion for the SDGs was an absolute inspiration.
