what is the sdg-challenge?

During the SDG-Challenge, multiple young professional teams with mixed backgrounds work on a real life sustainability challenge as faced by one of the leading organisations the team has partnered up with

The goal is to come up with a solution that not only impacts the company, but also the sector as a whole. During the final, all teams will present their solution in front of a professional jury. The team with the biggest impact wins!
