Fully Funded Smart Energy Challenge 2017 in Sweden
The Smart Energy Challenge 2017 dares you to think of alternatives for how to influence others to live more sustainably by reducing energy use. In particular, this competition focuses on sustainable energy that tackles 3 of the 17 United Nations goals: Goal 13: reducing climate change, Goal 12: ensuring sustainable consumption patterns, and Goal 7: establishing reliable energy sources. By implementing new technologies, organising activities, and creating campaigns to increase awareness of the benefits of using energy more efficiently, we can come together to take responsibility and make powerful changes. How will you contribute to the bigger picture to helping planet Earth?
Be creative and original with an idea pertaining to sustainable energy in either food, household, travel, or transportation.
Link your idea to an important local or global problem.
Find the best way to have a positive impact on society.
