In 2019, BE OPEN and Cumulus joined forces to hold an international competition for students and graduates of creative courses of universities. The competition ‘Second Life of Things in Design’ became an integral part of Cumulus Green 2020: For A New Circular Economy, and was inspired by the United Nation’s SDG programme.

SDGs were adopted by all United Nations Member States as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. Students of arts, design and architecture-related university courses were encouraged to submit works that are expected to demonstrate a creative, design-oriented take on the problems of sustainability, wiser production and consumption formulated by SDG12.
