DO School fellows who are looking for a challenge, experience, and to save some cash, here’s one that you might want to check out. The DO School and H&M have teamed up to establish this challenge, to help the push toward creating stores that are sustainable in terms of materials, construction, energy and operation. The Green Store Challenge will allow fellows to create a green store prototype that is scalable to H&M stores world-wide.
Fellows will have the opportunity to first connect with leading experts on various environmental aspects relating to the construction and operation of stores, including construction materials, recycling systems and sustainable interior design. Fellows will then conduct research to ensure they firmly grasp the vision that H&M has when it comes to finding a sustainable design and operation.
Individuals at the DO school between the ages of 18 and 28, from around the world are able to apply to participate in this challenge. Twenty fellows will be selected to participate in the Green Store Challenge and receive a scholarship to cover the cost of tuition. Each of the fellows will live and work together during the 10 week incubation phase. After this, fellows will return home and begin the 10 month implementation phase of the program through an online platform.
