The Buckminster Fuller Institute has named The Sentinel Project’s Una Hakika initiative as one of its finalists in the 2016 Fuller Challenge.
Now in its 9th cycle, the Fuller Challenge remains the only prize program specifically working to identify, catalyze, and celebrate projects that employ a whole systems approach to problem solving. Recognized as “socially responsible design’s highest award”, the Fuller Challenge puts forth a global call for solutions that address humanity’s most pressing problems, welcoming submissions from all fields. In response to this open call, designers, architects, activists, entrepreneurs, artists, planners, scientists, and other comprehensive design practitioners submit entries that present integrated strategies deeply informed by an understanding of a whole systems context. The Fuller Challenge continues to attract geographically diverse applicants working in communities and eco-systems around the world.
The six finalists now under consideration for the 2016 grand prize have undergone a rigorous, multi-stage review process for adherence to the entry criteria by the Fuller Challenge Review Committee: a diverse group of advisors and experts led by a seasoned review team.
The winner will be announced in September.
