HOW IT WORKS

PART 1 – SUSTAINABILITY BOOTCAMP (16.06, 12:30 – 18:15)

Professionals from across industry will come together the day before the GREENTECH FESTIVAL conference to take part in the Sustainability Bootcamp. Focusing around a set of 6 categories, teams will identify current challenges that are holding back sustainability outcomes, and boil these down to a set of clearly defined “Challenge Statements”. At the end of the half-day Bootcamp, the professionals will hand-over their “Challenge Statements” to Competing teams (participating online) and be linked up with a team as mentors for the Change-a-thon Challenge.

PART 2 – CHANGE-A-THON CHALLENGE (16:15, 16.06 – 17:15, 17.06 – 25H)

As soon as the teams have been introduced to their mentors and chosen their “Challenge Statement”, each team will begin work on coming up with innovative solutions to these problems/challenges focusing on new applications of technology, innovative business models or new incentives, drivers or economic models. At intervals over the next 25 hours, the mentors will check in with their teams online, offering support, guidance and advice.

PART 3 – JUDGING AND PRIZE CEREMONY

At 15:15 on the 17th of June (23 hours after starting), the teams will lodge a two minute video explaining their innovating solution to an expert judging panel. The judges will choose 3 finalists who will then get to present their solution via live video in front of the entire GREENTECH FESTIVAL conference audience. The final prize-winning team will be chosen by live audience vote and the winning teams will receive on-going mentorship from our corporate partners to help turn their idea into reality.
