The Buckminster Fuller Institute has published 103 entries to this year’s Buckminster Fuller Challenge in the IDEA INDEX — BFI’s remarkable repository of whole systems solutions to the world’s most pressing problems.

“IDEA INDEX 1.0 is a searchable database of incredible ideas submitted by design pioneers and social innovators from all over the world”, commented Elizabeth Thompson, BFI’s Executive Director. “What you’ll find is a collection of practitioners meaningfully engaged in systems change, all worthy of attention and support.”

Entries were submitted from all parts of the world— the US, the UK, India, the Sahel, and the Arctic. They also came from nations such as South Africa, Rwanda, Barbados, Haiti, Spain, Afghanistan, The Netherlands, Taiwan, and China. Several student projects were entered from ETH Zurich/Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Universidad del Paas Vasco, California College of the Arts and GAIA University, among others. Of the 170 projects submitted on October 24, 2011, 103 will be published.

A distinguished jury will begin their deliberation process soon to select a solution that best meets the rigorous criteria. Semi-Finalists will be announced in March 2012, Finalists will be announced in May 2012 and the winner will be revealed at a ceremony in New York City on June 6, 2012.
