The Buckminster Fuller Challenge Finalists

One of the semifinalists: The Portable Light Project
The Buckminster Fuller Challenge  is an annual international design award grants $100,000 to support the development and implementation of a "bold, visionary, tangible initiative that is focused on a well-defined need of critical importance and comprehensive, anticipatory, integrated approach". 
Winning solutions to the most significant challenges including:
  • ocean restoration
  • protecting indigenous knowledge
  • combating women’s illiteracy
  • connecting the remote developing world to the communication grid
"When evaluating these entries we were looking for those projects that mark the emergence of a new paradigm, one that not only addresses the problems but carries us beyond— into a new mode of being. These finalists do just that. Reviewing them has been deeply inspirational"
Jean Gardner, 2011 Challenge Juror
