The Victorian Design Challenge invites design professionals and students to tackle one of the great challenges of our time – waste. The Challenge aims to inspire impactful and implementable solutions that demonstrate the value of design and creativity to the creation of a better future.

Join Craig Reucassel from ABC’s War on Waste and the Challenge jury as teams live pitch their design ideas. Each team will have to convince the jury that their idea is the best way to reduce, recover or eliminate waste. Who will be crowned the Waste Challenge Champions?
