Climate Change and the Circular Economy

A new, climate-conscious and sustainable economy is central to avoid catastrophic climate change. In 2020-2021, Skills for the Future will empower students from across Hungary to innovate new solutions to the challenges posed by climate change with mentorship from industry leaders.

Hungary Idea Camp

The Skills for the Future Idea Camp was organized by EIT Climate-KIC and its delivery partners on 8-9th November 2019 in Budapest. Almost 100 Hungarian high-school students came together at La Vida Duna Rendezvényház to brainstorm and find business solutions for the challenge “How to make your school and its environment more sustainable”? Teams had speed-dating sessions with business mentors and they learned about how to make a winning pitch. Among the 18 mentors there were an IT developer, an environmental expert, a business advisor and some of them came from other diverse areas such as renewable energy, innovation, product development and communication.

The best 4 ideas were the following:

Replacing potable water with alternative solutions during flushing
Manufacturing paper from leaves & grass
Sustainable heating system
Application which fosters solutions and changes behaviour to mitigate climate change
We Are Looking for Mentors!
