BFI Board Chair David McConville, Buckminster Fuller Challenge winners Jason McLennan and Allan Savory, 2 finalists, and 4 jurors are all set to speak as part of the Whole Earth Summit, a free online conference happening March 11-14.
BFI is planning an exciting series of symposia with The Cooper Union Institute for Sustainable Design—Paul Hawken, Wendell Berry, Wes Jackson, Mark Bittman and Janine Benyus are all on their way to the Great Hall! More details to follow!
We are now accepting applications for the 2014 Fuller Challenge! Answer the call of Buckminster Fuller: "make the world work for 100% of humanity, in the shortest possible time, through spontaneous cooperation, without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone.”
Coinciding with the beginning of a new year for BFI, we are very excited to be launching our new website! After months of hard work, we've improved the navigation, updated the visual style, and made it even easier to get in touch.
The Buckminster Fuller Institute (BFI) is thrilled to announce the dates of the 2014 Fuller Challenge. Each year, BFI awards $100,000 to support the development and implementation of an innovative design solution that holistically addresses some of humanity’s most pressing problems.
