Remember, the sky is the limit.
Your work may be a new product, building, technology, material, a collaborative design, or even a crafted message, for instance, music video.
Create a design, video or artwork which relates to either: Communication, Visuals, Buildings, Fashion or any creative elements that you can think of, that evokes the idea of sustainable living by protecting our environment, through the innovative use of space, lighting, technology and form.
Any forms of work are acceptable as long as the aim is to implement sustainability to protect our environment.
So, be creative, visionary and innovative!
The final work has to be posted on social media, which needs to be searchable via hashtags #MonashADA #MonashADACup #Monash
Wait, what’s sustainability?
Some of you might want to ask, what actually is sustainability?
According to McGill University, sustainability means meeting one’s needs without jeopardising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
To put it simply, sustainability is the concept of making sure that one can consistently provide for himself or herself using limited resources by preventing depletion of the resources.
Bear in mind that sustainability is not only related to the environment, as apart from natural resources, other resources such as social and economic resources are equally important and are aimed to be preserved as well.
Still don’t get it? Well, let me give you an example.
Imagine you are an employer of a company, what can you do to promote sustainability? One possible way is to reduce or avoid using single-use products.
Now you have an idea of improving sustainability, how should you execute it? You can buy dishes for the kitchen instead of using paper and plastic, or provide incentives to employees who bring their own reusable cutleries, or even take other actions which support the idea.
The list of ways to encourage sustainability and how to put them into action certainly does not end here. There are no boundaries to it. That’s why we want YOU to unshackle your creativity and curate work that can help make the world a better place!
