  1. Introduction
    Created by Michelin in 2001 to encourage and recognize creative design around the world, The Movin’On Challenge Design is a prestigious global competition reflecting the importance of innovative design in the future of mobility.

Entries come from all over the world and include individuals, schools, and teams of transportation and mobility designers, including Original Equipment Manufacturers and suppliers, studios, students, teachers, artists, architects, engineers, and futurists.Movin’On Challenge Design is organized by Michelin North America, Inc. of One Parkway South, Greenville, South Carolina, USA and named as Michelin in this document.

    The 2021 Theme: RESPECT: Ending Isolation and Conquering the Mobility Divide 

    Age and disability can limit access to safe and affordable mobility for one of every four people in the world today, reducing joy and the ability to fully participate in, benefit from, and contribute to society.

    The 2021 Movin’On challenge to entrants is to design a future with truly inclusive access to mobility, a future that breaks down barriers and increases the personal well-being and respect for all people.

    Some things to consider:
    • Age can impact the ability of both young and old people to access affordable and sustainable mobility.
    • Disability can take many forms, both visible and invisible to the outside world.
    • The combination of physical or emotional disability and lack of access to mobility often results in isolation, leading to further withdrawal from society.
