The students get to put their theoretical know-how into practice and learn new meta skills that complement the things they learned in school. To solve the challenges, the students get support from coaches, experts and members of the organization that presented the challenge. During the week, students and partners will have a unique opportunity to network. There’s a good chance that you’ll find new talent for your organization in this event.
This year the students have an opportunity to invent their own solutions to UN´s sustainable development goals.

The intensive week will conclude with the jury reviewing the work and picking the best solutions. The best ideas will be noticed and teams will have an possibility to continue working with their ideas even after the event.
