People compete for different reasons.
Some do it for the prizes. Some do it for the glory. Some do it to test themselves in the crucible of competition, going against their fellow participants and their own self-imposed limitations to see what they’re truly capable of. And some have completely different reasons altogether.
See why 2021 Polestar Design Contest winners Mingwei Liu, David Vultaggio, and honourable mention Kristian Talvitie competed, and why they entered the world of design in the first place, above.
Few things symbolise freedom like a road trip. Open vistas, unique experiences, and the feeling that something new lies just over the horizon make road trips timelessly compelling. And few places match the United States when it comes to an association with hitting the open road. Where better, then, to continue the Polestar 2 roadshow?
Sustainability. A term that has shaken off any buzzword-like connotations to become a rallying cry for the modern era. It categorises a movement that is still taking shape, one that’s seen as the answer to the unfolding situation that is the climate crisis. Industries, individuals, and initiatives are defined by how sustainable they are, from art to automotive. Especially when they come together.
When fighting for a cause, it pays to gather people together. Meetings, rallies, expositions, they’re all ways of collecting the like-minded in one place to really make progress. When that cause is a climate-neutral future, things get tricky. Assembling a global crowd in one place causes untold emissions. Electrify Expo, America’s largest e-mobility event, had a clever solution.
