My Reuse Design Fashion + Design Scholarships 2011-2012

Istituto Europeo di Design (IED) is pleased to announce that there are 38 scholarships for international students! You’re invited to participate by developing a project.

This is your chance to win one of the 38 international master scholarships for the 2011-2012 school year for studies in Milan, Rome, Turin, Cagliari, Venice, Florence, Madrid and Barcelona.

This competition is open to young international students. IED rewards to the creative talents of young people aged between 20 and 45 years with an undergraduate course in its schools of Design, Fashion, Visual Communication and Management.

Objective

Develop a project on the theme: Your Reused Design.

“Reuse” means using an item more than once, for the same function, or for a second life, when it is used for a different purpose. By reusing, we can create new shapes from old materials. Reuse helps save time, money, energy, and resources, it can offer quality products to people and organizations with limited means, it can generate jobs and business activity that contribute to the economy. Reuse is a very important part of a sustainable behavior. Reusing is different from recycling, which consists in processing used materials for the production of new objects.

Reuse can consist of different actions: remanufacturing (reconstruct the object), regiving/regifting (taking a gift and giving it to someone else), repurposing (changing the function of an object), and nearly everything we buy and consume can be reused: old metal cans, clothes, textiles, plastic bags, bicycle tires, packaging tools are just a few examples of objects that can generate creative reuse.
