Entries are now open for the Timber Trade Federation’s Conversations about Climate Change design competition and exhibition, which offers a platform for “urgent” climate debates. The competition tasks architects, designers and craftspeople with creating innovative, playful and thought-provoking designs using sustainably sourced tropical timber, in a bid to show the importance of the natural resource. Creations can be anything from a piece of furniture or a sculpture to a model or a functional design object. “2020 had been designated a super year for climate conversations with COP26 [postponed due to COVID-19]” said the Timber Trade Federation. “the battle against climate change remains an urgent threat to humanity,” it continued. “Conversations about Climate Change asks designers to respond to this material, encourages them to think about the materials they usually work with, and to consider how their role as a specifier is vital for implementing change.”
