Ever wonder what happens to your electronic waste? That old computer or cell phone you discarded? Do you want new electronics in 10 to 20 years? If so, here is your chance to do something about it by creating innovative new uses for existing electronic waste, as well as its future prevention.

Through the Second International E-Waste Design Competition, participants are asked to explore solutions to both remediate the existing e-waste problem and prevent e-waste generation in the future. The spirit of this competition is to prompt the industrialized world to dialogue about product designs for environmentally responsible green computing and entertainment. The goals of this competition are to learn about ways to reuse e-waste for new and productive means, explore your own ideas for how to address e-waste problems and contribute to the body of knowledge that advances the practice of environmentally responsible product design for current and future computing technology products.

You’re invited to create a broad range of design concepts and innovations for technology products that demonstrate fresh approaches and responsible solutions for green computing technologies.
