Island of Happiness Coastal Design Competition

Propose a new, sustainable approach to seawall design and construction. Read Overview...
Overview

Creating the Island of Happiness

The search for harmony between people and their environment is timeless, but our successes have traditionally come with a negative impact on the environment. Seawalls have been no exception to this legacy, but their function of protection from storms and erosion remains a vital need. That’s why The Island of Happiness is looking to bridge the gap in sustainable seawalls, and that’s where we need original, mold-breaking designs.

There has yet to exist a treatment for the sea edge that is sustainably designed without sacrificing an elegant aesthetic. Your challenge is to propose a new kind of sea edge treatment that can be created first for the Island of Happiness, and eventually become the new standard for sea edge treatments in the rest of Indonesia and possibly other parts of the world.

 

Prize Summary

Prizes will be awarded to leading innovators in both the ideation and prototype phases. However, the money is just the beginning. Winners of the ideation phase who advance into prototyping will travel to the Island of Happiness to collaborate with Kura Kura Bali and other firms to develop and test their prototype (all expenses paid).

Other prizes may include

  • Recognition at the United Nations Global Initiative Sustainable Development Solutions Network
  • Recognition in the Shanghai Gallery of Art at Three on the Bund
  • Scholarship (subject to meeting admission criteria) to enroll in UID’s flagship leadership development course conducted in collaboration with MIT Sloan School of Management, or other courses at our partners Tsinghua University, Bandung Institute of Technology, Paramadina University and University of Indonesia
  • Potential happiness job in the Island of Happiness, based on availability
  • The opportunity to apply your solution to seawalls in different parts of the Indonesian Archipelago

     

You’re in Good Company

There are a number of remarkable, accomplished individuals who have recognized the need for breakthroughs in sustainable development and endorsed the UN Sustainable Development Goals Pyramid initiative and we welcome you to join this movement.

“幸福之岛挑战赛——龟乐龟乐岛生态海堤设计全球征集”

 

背景介绍

 

自联合国于2015年发布17个可持续发展目标(SDGs)以来,国际社会和来自不同领域的领导者和实践者都在不断寻找实现SDG的解决方案,位于印尼巴厘岛的龟乐龟乐岛也是其中的一员。龟乐龟乐岛自开发之初便树立了创建“幸福之岛”的愿景,希望建设一个具备可持续性、包容性并兼顾人类福祉的社区典范,并为包括能源使用、水源保护、垃圾管理和低碳排放等可持续发展领域的新技术提供实践平台。联合国可持续发展行动网络东南亚网络总部(UN SDSN SEA)、清华大学东南亚中心在未来将在龟乐龟乐岛落地。

2017年9月18日,我们在联合国大会最大的商会分论坛——“商业与可持续发展:创新、科技与联结的美好未来”上启动了“幸福之岛挑战赛——龟乐龟乐岛生态海堤设计全球征集”,此次挑战赛HeroX共同合作,Hero X由X Prize创始人Peter Diamandis担任主席。

此次“幸福之岛挑战赛——龟乐龟乐岛生态海堤设计全球征集”是龟乐岛开启全球创新方案征集的第一步,也是探索跨界合作和最新实践以解决可持续发展实际问题的范例。

“幸福之岛项目最特别的地方在于它的开发理念深深植根于巴厘岛传统哲学——幸福三部曲的基础之上,即我们只有兼顾人与人、人与自然、人与精神世界的和谐,才能够得到幸福,这个古老哲学的理念与联合国17项可持续发展目标不谋而合,创新和全球合作是达成联合国2030议程的关键。”——联合国气候变化框架前任秘书Christiana Figueres

 

共创“幸福之岛”

人与自然和谐共处之道是人类不断探索的课题,但我们在经济发展的过程中往往给环境带来了负面影响。海堤建设也不可避免的带来了生态影响,但是海堤的防风暴和防侵蚀效用还是非常必要的。这就是“幸福之岛——龟乐龟乐岛”探索可持续海堤解决方案的初衷,我们希望突破现有模式,寻找原创性海堤设计方案。

你的挑战是设计一款前所未有的新型海堤,它不仅具备生态可持续性,也能够兼顾美学意义。入选的原创设计方案不仅将获得奖金,更将获得把方案原型在龟乐岛进行实地建设的资金支持,并在实地建设过程中不断进行改进,最终成为印尼乃至世界新型海堤解决方案的标杆。

 

奖项简介

本次创新挑战赛分为两个赛程,第一赛程为方案设计阶段,第二赛程为原型实践阶段,每个赛程均为获奖者设有奖金。入选方案将有机会到印尼龟乐岛实地,与龟乐岛技术开发专家、合作方共同工作,进行方案的原型落地测试(所有费用由组织方承担)。

除此之外,获奖者还可能获得以下展示机会:

  1. 在2018年于印尼巴厘岛举办的世界银行和IMF年会平台上进行方案和原型展示;
  2. 在联合国可持续发展行动行动网络(UN SDSN)的平台上进行方案和原型展示;
  3. 在上海外滩三号沪深画廊进行方案和原型展示;
  4. 获得奖学金参与佳通集团UID公益基金的旗舰领导力开发课程,此课程由麻省理工斯隆管理学院、清华大学、印度尼西亚大学、印尼万隆科技学院等合作方共同开展;
  5. 与幸福之岛——印尼龟乐岛的合作机会;
  6. 将你的方案在印尼群岛的不同岛屿进行实践和推广的机会。
