Group14 Engineering is sponsoring a cook stove competition to be held on Saturday, August 27, 2011 from 3 pm to 5 pm at RedLine Galleries. This competition is in conjunction with Design for the Other 90%.
Nearly half of the world’s population, an estimated 3 billion people, use open fire to cook. This practice results the premature death of 1.6 million people annually through building fires, poor ventilation and cooking accidents.
Join Group14 in exploring the health risks and environmental impacts associated with these cooking practices during our cook stove competition. Our aim is to raise awareness, increase education, and promote collaboration between the industry and community in working towards a better solution.
How Can You Participate?
Group14 is inviting stove designers to participate in a cook off. Stove designs will be evaluated based on various criteria including their thermal efficiency, environmental impact of their fuel source, ventilation, cost, capability of local manufacture, portability, robustness, embodied energy and creativity.
As a part of the competition, Group14 will provide an overview of the current implementation of improved cook stoves, opportunities for future development, and the local and global implications of half the world’s cooking practices.
