Winner: MIE Design Award for Healthcare
The project is about re-imaging how circular projects are deployed within developing communities. From project scoping and goal setting all the way through to deployment and refinement. In order to do this, a case study was completed, co-designing an anaerobic digester with a community in Nigeria, along with a plan for phasing its implementation and proposing a method for how it might scale. The aim was to progress the settlement a step closer to becoming a self-sufficient community with access to sustainable light and electricity and give the community a better chance of regaining both personal and political power.
"This demonstrated exemplary application of inclusive design to solve real issues of health, well-being and personal power for a community. A powerful design process and implementation”
