FabCafe Global and Loftwork held the “crQlr Awards“, a global award for designing the circular economy.

crQlr Awards is a challenge to co-creative design of a circular economy system by inviting creative ideas and activities from a wide range of fields, including entrepreneurs and artists from around the world. In total, 204 projects from companies, organizations, start-ups, designers, and other organizations in 24 countries were submitted.

At this event, which is held as a related project to this award, feedback and discussions will be held over two days with the 19 judges of the crQlr Awards, the chairpersons from each country, and two or three award-winning teams as guests. As a simultaneous program, a public viewing will also be held at FabCafe Tokyo. As an opportunity for participants to learn from each other, and as a chance to connect with front-line guests and participants involved in the circular economy, we would like to invite you to come and watch this exciting event.

  • Those who are interested in the award-winning circular economy projects and discussions between the winners and the judges.
  • Those who are interested in or researching circular economy trends in Japan and abroad
  • Those who have environmental and social issues they want to tackle, but do not know how to turn them into actions yet

    ReBlend Founder

    Anita de Wit is the Founder of ReBlend, with MSc Economics from VU Amsterdam. With a long history in consultancy / project management for big corporates around themes like creating better business, development of innovative business models and sustainable business development, Anita realized there is a big difference between strategic plans made by consultants and the reality of day to day business in which changes adapt very slowly. To create more impact, she started ReBlend to make circular textiles from dutch post consumer textile waste. She chose textiles because we all wear clothes, clothes are a part of our identity and a world without textiles is hard to imagine therefore it is inevitable that we need to change to a different way of making fabrics and fashion.
