With our SPOTLIGHT ON event series, we focuses on former winners of the German Ecodesign Award and their underlying themes in expert discussions, workshops and excursions.

How have the projects developed? Where do they see themselves in ten years? What challenges do we face in the areas of food, fashion, mobility or housing? And what role can designers play in system change? These and other questions form the basis for exciting discussions and reflections.

This year's kick-off was the online talk “There is another way – How does sustainable consumption succeed?”, which took place as part of the Berlin Design Week.

Past events

A new culture of repair? At the online talk on October 5, it was discussed how this can succeed.

Is this new? No, repaired! In this workshop participants learned how to save their favorite pieces and fabric scraps - and our planet at the same time.

In our talk on 19 May 2022, three former winners and environmental expert Lisa Frien-Kossobolow discussed the question of how sustainable consumption can succeed. You will soon find a recording of the event on this page.
