The challenge adopts techniques which communicate, interact, empathize and stimulate its participants, helping them to obtain an understanding of their needs, desires and experiences. It is a unique approach to problem solving; one that starts with the people you are designing for and ends with new solutions that are tailor-made to suit their needs. The process will also involve the adoption and utilization of inspiration, ideation and implementation in the problem-solving approach.

This process is contextualized in a two-part online curriculum centered on sustainability, the SDGs and the Circular Economy. This is not a theoretical program – participants will actually prototype their solutions to the Design Challenge and build on the ideas as they progress through this curriculum. The course follows the “Watch – Think – Do – Explore – Collaborate” pedagogy in a highly experiential learning format. Throughout the duration of the program, Alumni will discuss their own experiences and deepen their knowledge in key areas where further sustainability practice and development are needed. The Design Challenge for Sustainable Waste Management will be held online over a twelve (12) week period, starting tentatively in mid-March, 2021.


The completion of the Design Challenge will pave way for the YALI Alumni Innovation Award, an online ceremony where participants will present their ideas and receive feedback from a panel of judges. The online session will also host and provide an instructive conversation with an online audience of Alumni of the Center. The highlight of the award ceremony will be the announcement of the winning Challenge group. The winning group will receive $10,000 to implement their challenge project/ idea.
