GREENVILLE, S.C.— Michelin North America Inc. is seeking entries for its 2022 Movin'On Challenge Design competition revolving around sustainable mobility for delivery of goods, under the theme "Delivered."
"Technology has transformed society's expectations into a global culture that demands the rapid delivery of goods. The future of mobility must be more than simply moving people and goods; the evolving world demands delivery of services to all people," Mike Marchand, partnerships director, Movin'On Summit, said.
The 2022 Movin'On Challenge Design task is to design a mobility solution to provide essential services to all people in a safe, efficient and sustainable way.
Artists, designers, engineers, architects, city planners and creatives worldwide are invited to enter either in teams or individually.
The competition opens on Sept. 1 and closes March 1, 2022. Entries are judged by an international jury, including heads of advanced design for major mobility organizations.
The three winners will be announced in 2022 at the future Movin'On event.
"Nearly 30% of the world's population lives outside urban centers and an equal number reside in economically depressed urban areas with sub-standard infrastructure. We must ensure services, including essential services, are readily available to people with limited access to transportation," Nick Mailhiot, Movin'On Challenge Design chairman, said.
"The 2022 challenge is to identify the people or communities that your solution would serve, including research, and how it will improve their quality of life. The mobility solution should build on the foundation of inclusive design to enhance the human experience and not simply to make services more convenient to those who already have access. Then illustrate how the solution will deliver services to people," he said.
Since its inception in 2000, Movin'On Challenge Design has received more than 14,000 entries from 134 countries. Recent winners and Judge's Award recipients have included university and graduate program students, professional designers, engineers, architects, futurists and cross-functional teams.
Movin'On, created Michelin, brings together more than 300 public, private, collective and individual players: corporates, cities, countries, academics, international organizations and civil society.
Movin'On provides concrete solutions and innovations, Michelin said, largely through its think-and-do tank Movin'On Lab and Communities of Interest. Every year, the Movin'On community organizes physical and digital events to drive projects forward in tangible ways.
