EESC Design ZeroNine. 2009 European Award for a Sustainable Present

09.12.09 – 09.12.2009
To mark the European Year of Creativity and Innovation, the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) is launching a design competition to create, and later produce, an innovative and sustainable design product, including packaging, with a strong civil society message.

The purpose of EESC Design ZeroNine is to create an innovative design product with packaging for a modern, mobile and international audience, aged 30+, which will be officially adopted by the EESC as a promotional gift for its President, Vice-Presidents and Members to be used during official visits and on other designated occasions. The winning design will be awarded 10 000 Euro and will be produced in a limited edition in 2010 as part of the EESC’s communication strategy.

The EESC, in cooperation with the Belgian design organisation, Designed in Brussels, represented by Olivier Gilson, and the independent design curator, Giovanna Massoni, is launching EESC Design ZeroNine in all 27 EU Member States.

The EESC Design ZeroNine Award Ceremony introducing the winners of the competition will take place at the EESC on 9 December 2009, at 6.30 pm. At the same time an exhibition of selected best entries, accompanied by a catalogue, will be opened.
