The course consist of workshops and events provided by experts from
different perspectives. In addition, the students will

In 2018, the teams designed an alternative to disposable headphones (used on flights),
a greener washing machine, a new way of recycling batteries and modifiable shoes.
In 2019, the participants designed circular business cases as
a sustainable alternative to shopping bags, closing the loop for old office furniture, and
recovering fertiliser compounds from alternative sources (Festivals!)
There are no limits on what you can explore!
We are looking forward to the innovations of the 2020 teams!
