A circular economy is fundamental to reach sustainability. Arguments in favor and opposed are shown.
On April 23, 2015 the Information Murals Lab organized world’s first Mural-Thon. Students from the Utrecht Arts School and the Centre for Sustainability of the universities of Delft, Leiden and Rotterdam, joined talents and expertise in order to make Information Murals about the Circular Economy.
A jury, chaired by Robert Horn, and including professor Arnold Tukker, André Veneman, corporate director AkzoNobel, Marnix Koopmans, Green Growth of VNONCW and Karel van der Waarde, graphic design researcher announced two winning teams tied at 59 points. The third team won 57 points.
The information murals lab would like to congratulate all the students on an incredible job: Mischa Appel, Michael Jovanovic, Franco Donati, Weiwen Zhong, Rink Weiss, Coen van Duin, Maria Lecaromosquera, Carien van der Haven, Mikki Schellevis and Bart Lok.
As in 2015, we will organize a second Mural-Thon soon. We are discussing themes like the refugee crisis, brexit or foreign affairs with parties interested in forming teams and hosting the event. We’ll keep you posted.
