Terra Carta Design Lab winners announced

May 2022

The four winners of the Terra Carta Design Lab, a competition to develop solutions to the environmental crisis, have been announced. The Terra Carta Design Lab is a Royal College of Art student and alumni-led response to the environmental challenges our planet faces, and forms part of HRH The Prince of Wales’ Sustainable Markets Initiative.

Working for the RCA, Equals provided project management on the competition. Equals helped to establish and maintain the processes and protocols for the delivery of the competition through programme and risk management, as well as overseeing the meeting and reporting schedule.

The winners are:

  • ZELP – a wearable device for cows to reduce methane emissions
  • The Tyre Collective – a clean-tech start-up spearheading the capture and monitoring of tyre wear
  • AMPHITEX – the first 100% recyclable and chemical-free outdoor performance textile
  • Aerseeds – aerodynamic seed pods made from food waste for plant and tree restoration.

The winners were selected by the Terra Carta Design Lab Grand Jury, and will each receive £50k funding to help further develop their ideas, along with mentoring from RCA Chancellor, Founder of the creative collective LoveFrom and former Chief Design Officer at Apple Sir Jony Ive, and members of the Sustainable Markets Initiative global network.
