We want visionary and creative minds keen to shape the micro-mobility future to participate in the contest. No professional qualifications are required. To be eligible to participate, the following rules must be followed:
To join the challenge, individuals or teams must register and upload their designs in the format described below. ENVO will review the submissions, and 50 entries will proceed to the next round. To develop these entries further, selected participants will be supported by a team of mobility experts over three weeks. In the final stage, the jury will choose three projects as the competition’s winners.
Each submission must be submitted in one of the following categories considering the specified design requirements for each category:
Electric micro-mobility solutions are not yet fully adopted for extreme weather conditions. There is almost no reliable electric micro-mobility solution for areas covered by snow for more than half the year. How can a solution address the challenges of moving through the snow with zero carbon footprint?
Watercraft require large amounts of power to move, especially at higher speeds due to the exponential relationship between the speed and the required power to reach that speed. Electric batteries do not offer the same level of energy density as hydrocarbon-based sources of energy. Consequently, an electric system must be more efficient than a traditional hydrocarbon-fueled system to achieve the same performance.
Existing off-road recreational vehicles like quads and side-by-sides have considerable environmental effects. Using fossil fuels and generating lots of noise to explore nature would be a paradoxical and ironic choice. ENVO wants to take the challenge and develop electric mobility solutions to explore nature with excellent efficiency on the road and off-road.
Currently, there is a good variety of electric bikes and trikes on the market. However, most products are not designed for all weather conditions. There’s a void in the market for weather-protected e-Bikes and e-Trikes that can be used in the city and to explore nature. This category allows for more freedom in ideation and brave concepts
Do you have an impressive micro-mobility solution that does not fit the above categories? There is still an opportunity for you to join the challenge with an innovative yet feasible design.
As ENVO Next Move is a part of ENVO’s distributed innovation initiative, the design evaluation criteria combine innovativeness and feasibility. In addition to the design criteria mentioned for each category, the jury will consider the following requirements with the same weight given for each numbered section:
Designs should be futuristic, creative, and feasible. Understanding the tech trends that might not have been adopted yet, but can shape the future of micro-mobility is of great importance.
Increasing demands for efficiency and minimum environmental impact dictate new design principles, including simplicity in form and technical parts. Designers must think about innovative designs that can embrace simplicity. It is a challenging balance to address, but it can guarantee design success once met.
Designs should take into account the way that the socioeconomics of mobility will change. Designers must consider the values of their user group and how they evolve in the future in connection with mobility.
Environmental and social sustainability principles must be embedded in designs. The solution must contribute to a more suitable mobility behavior and an inclusive, diverse, and resilient society. Another critical aspect of sustainable design is a sustainable product life cycle with a minimum environmental footprint.
Designs must ensure long-term business viability. The design must be based on a transparent business model and a visible market demand. Remember that it should thrive in the turbulent market of mobility.
