"If success or failure of the planet and of human beings depended on how I am and what I do ... How would I be? What would I do?" — R. Buckminster Fuller

September 4, 2007, New York City — The Buckminster Fuller Institute has announced a call for entries to THE BUCKMINSTER FULLER CHALLENGE, an international design science competition which seeks to co! nfer a prize of $100,000 to a single winning solution.

Prize monies will be awarded in June, 2008 to support the development and implementation of a solution that has significant potential to solve humanity's most pressing problems in the shortest possible time while enhancing the Earth's ecological integrity.

Inspired by the life and work of visionary 20th Century futurist and global thinker, R. Buckminster Fuller, The Challenge seeks solutions that epitomize what Fuller called the trimtab principle. The Trimtab — a nautical term for a tiny rudder on the trailing edge of the main rudder of very large vessels, causes an initial momentum allowing the main rudder to turn with less effort in pulling the whole ship around.

"We anticipate receiving many creative and viable solutions that may, at first glance, not seem commensurate with the task at hand — but upon closer inspection we'll discover they contain certain missing ingredients t! hat are just what it will take to help bring about a future that is ec ologically sustainable", remarks Challenge co-founder and BFI Executive Director, Elizabeth Thompson.

"The winning solution will demonstrate how a relatively small effort – in terms of energy and resources – precisely applied at the right time and place can put the ship onto a whole new course. We think there are solutions out there, in the hands of visionary individuals and teams of people, that will play a pivotal role in helping to turn things around."

The Buckminster Fuller Challenge was announced to the public on July 12th, the occasion of Buckminster Fuller's 112th birthday. "We have had a tremendous response", explains Angela Molenaar, Challenge co-director and BFI's Director of Development.

"Participants in The Challenge can submit solutions from any domain of human endeavor, focused on the problem they feel most urgently in need of attention. Fuller's pioneering example of ground breaking, highly original solutions to problems such a! s shelter and transportation serve as an inspiration for the approach we have taken in crafting the call for proposals. We have deliberately avoided limiting The Challenge to a particular professional field and topical focus, in an effort to capture Fuller's comprehensive approach to problem-solving. You never know what form a brilliant idea might take, and we want to The Buckminster Fuller Challenge to attract the very best ideas out there."

Submissions to The Buckminster Challenge will be accepted from Sept. 4th through midnight (EDT) October 30th, 2007.
