Are you an internatinal student that is up for a challenge? If so, the DO School has one for you! 20 fellows will be chosen by the DO School, those fellows will then compete in a challenge to create a sustainable to-go cup system and campaign. This challenge is to help come up with a solution to the millions of paper and plastic cups that are disposed of every day. Before being able to compete in the challenge, fellows will participate in the challenge lab where they will learn more about the impact of materials and packaging, recycling systems along with branding and campaigning.
International students around the world between the ages of 21 and 28 are able to apply for this fellowship before September 15th. Chosen fellows will have their DO School tuition cost for the one year program covered along with the ten-week incubation phase.
This challenge is through the collaboration of the DO School, New York City’s Office of Long Term Planning and Sustainability along with content support from American Friends of Bucerius and PLASTICITY. Support comes from Newman’s Own Foundation and the Dekeyser&Friends Foundation.
