With our SPOTLIGHT ON event series, we focuses on former winners of the German Ecodesign Award and their underlying themes in expert discussions, workshops and excursions.

How have the projects developed? Where do they see themselves in ten years? What challenges do we face in the areas of food, fashion, mobility or housing? And what role can designers play in system change? These and other questions form the basis for exciting discussions and reflections.

This year's kick-off was the online talk “There is another way – How does sustainable consumption succeed?”, which took place as part of the Berlin Design Week.

The next events will take place in the context of the jury meeting. More information on the programme will follow shortly.


The German Ecodesign Award has been awarded over 100 times in the last twelve years. What has happened to the projects of the former winners since then? In our series successstories, we report on the development of various award-winning projects.
