The six Buckminster Fuller Challenge finalists announced this week focus on various aspects of environmental and social sustainability and combine natural systems and modern technology to address resource management. Here are a few of the 2015 Buckminster Fuller Challenge finalists:
- Algae Systems: uses a closed-loop, systemic approach to generate value from wastewater, providing a crucial, economically and environmentally sustainable service.
- Community Architects Network: seeks to empower people throughout Asia to become the designers of their own development.
- Drylands Resilience Initiative and HAZEL: a powerful digital modeling tool that supports coordinated, scenario-based whole systems thinking and decision-making for water-smart urban design.
