Sustainability Innovation Challenge 2023
The Sustainability Innovation Challenge hopes to showcase a diverse range of sustainable solutions emphasising on citizen science. Through the event, we hope to initiate a systemic approach towards sustainable solutions where the creative minds within our communities will get to come together and brainstorm on potential solutions for an inevitable issue.
The event's mission is to provide a platform for participants from across the state of Queensland where they will be grouped in a diverse team to tackle the most pertaining issue on global food security and nature-based solutions. The platform will be a medium for brainstorming around global sustainability issues in the hopes of a more sustainable future.
No experience in engineering or business is required, this challenge is for anyone who is interested in creating a sustainable future.
