Energy Challenge

The Energy Challenge is a hackathon-style competition where teams of students compete to find the best solution to a current sustainability problem. This year’s theme is the sustainable festival. We raise the following question:
In order to make festivals around the world more sustainable, how can their carbon footprint be decreased with regard to energy usage?

Before the competitions, the 40 students with the most promising & interesting concepts are selected to participate in the Energy Challenge, taking place from the 13th to the 15th of December. Throughout the competition inspiring speakers, educational workshops and expert feedback will bring the ideas to the next level. At the end of the event the concepts will be judged on criteria like scalability and possibilities for broader implementation in society. Finally, the best idea will be chosen by expert judges to be the winner of The Energy Challenge 2018.

Last but not least, the winner of the Energy Challenge will receive a budget and a partnership with Innofest to implement the winning idea!
