Interview with Anna Berkenbusch

In our new interview section, we ask experts who help decide on the awarding of the German Ecodesign Award what is important to them in the submitted entries. This time, Anna Berkenbusch, who is the jury chair since 2018, explains what she considers to be the criteria for a well-made project.


The Jury

Coming up next: On 28 September, the interdisciplinary jury of renowned designers and environmental experts will come together in order to determine this year's nominees and award winners.

The Jury

Ten years!

The German Ecodesign Award will be presented for the tenth time this year. We look back on many inspiring ideas and impressive projects! Here we tell some of the stories of former award-winning projects:


Touring exhibition in Ludwigsburg

From 6 to 30 July, this year's touring exhibition was on view on the premises of the Kunstverein at MIK Ludwigsburg. It is planned to bring the double exhibition, which presents the nominated and award-winning entries of the German Ecodesign Award of 2019 and 2020 on the occasion of the 10th anniversary, also to Innsbruck and Berlin. As a taster, the exhibition can already be visited virtually now! You will find the link to the virtual tour on the exhibition page.
