Studentprosjekt "Oslo Living Lab" fikk Core 77-pris

Glenn Sæstad og Nikolai Sabel har vunnet studentpris i den prestisjetunge konkurransen Core77 Design Awards 2019, i kategorien Design for Social Impact.

Prosjektet deres Oslo Living Lab er et sosialt initiativ som er startet og drevet av ungdommer fra Grønland i Oslo.

“With the open brief of designing a service and a brand, we wanted contribute to the growing urban agriculture movement in Oslo. We quickly got in contact with the social enterprise Nabolagshager, a center for urban agriculture working with eco-innovation and green community initiatives. They introduced us to Edible City Network, a EU research they are a part of and coordinates on behalf of Oslo Municipality, and asked if we wanted to kick-start the project for them”, said the students.

The first pilot of Oslo Living Lab is a composting service, collecting organic waste from neighbouring small businesses and turning it into consumer growing kits. The growing kit itself contains soil, seeds and sowing instructions, packed in a bag made from discarded grain bags upcycled from a local brewery.
