Green Cells Program
The Green Future Club is committed to a near future where all products are sustainable. The mission is to bring together the best people to accelerate the sustainable development of materials, products and services.
With the Green Cells program, enrolled in collaboration with the IKEA Stiftung, young designers get support to develop concepts for sustainable products or services with a business case to increase their chances within the Green Concept Award.
Selected Award participants will receive further support to develop their concepts, communication & will join the networking among club members.
The workshops are aimed students, graduates and start-ups. How we work: Workshops take place digitally on Mondays from16.30-18.00 CEST. Participants work on their projects and hand in results until Fridays 12.00 CEST. We provide interim feedback until 18.00 CEST. Participants refine projects until the next workshop and present results for further feedback.

The Sustainable Business Model Design - Toolkit is an 8-step process for developing sustainable product and service concepts with a basic business model. It is aimed to creators, who want to create impactful sustainable projects. It was developed by the Green Future Club director, Nils Bader in cooperation with the German Institute for Sustainability- and Quality management. and has been successively developed since then.
Presenting a concept to the public to collaborators, partners, supporters or investors is pretty different from documenting the design process. That is why we have developed a separate presentation guideline that provides guidance on how to integrate, modify and supplement the toolkit's documentation.
