Team up for climate!

Adapting and living together in the face of climate risks

This challenge is now Finished.
Check out the New Edition on Egis impact Hub Platform!

Be the change!

We propose you to create or join a team of committed students in order to contribute to the subject: adapting and living together in the face of climate risks.

It will be a complete experience: we will explain you the problematic, share with you inspiring solutions, and then mentor you to overcome your limits. 

Ready to take up this challenge ? We will guide you all along the event to help you answer one of these questions:

  • How can we adapt to climate reality and promote the integration of affected populations? 
  • How can we manage climate risks to reduce our vulnerability and enhance resilience? 
  • How to reduce the gap between directly affected populations and world top emitters of GHG? 

All awarded students will be named «Young Earth Champions» (Jeunes Champions de la Terre)  and will participate to the award ceremony at the Earth University at the UNESCO, Paris

Good to know: all participants will be included to the Egis Innovation Alumni Network to connect with employees, start ups and former innovation award participants and internship opportunities!
