How would you like to join a global movement of student innovators and educators who are transforming the way we use and reuse resources?

If you are passionate about creating a more circular and sustainable future, then you might be interested in the CircularCityChallenge platform.

The CircularCityChallenge platform is a digital learning and innovation hub for students and educators from around the world who want to learn more about the circular economy and apply it to their local contexts. The platform offers a variety of materials and resources, such as case studies, videos, books, step-by-step guidance on how to develop circularity projects, and other education tools, to help you understand the principles and benefits of circularity.

But that’s not all. The platform also invites you to participate in the CircularCityChallenge challenge, a global competition that rewards the most creative and impactful circular solutions for cities. Whether you want to tackle waste, energy, mobility, or any other urban challenge, you can submit your idea and compete for prizes and recognition. The challenge is open to students of ages 14-18 and all backgrounds, as well as educators who want to inspire their students and colleagues.

  • Explore the platform and learn more about the circular economy and its applications.
  • Identify a problem or opportunity in your city that could be solved or improved by applying circular principles.

  • Submit your solution by August 31st, 2024. You will need to provide a short description, a video pitch, and a prototype or mock-up of your solution.
  • Wait for the results. The winners will be announced in October 2024. They will receive cash prizes, a trip to Vienna for Award Ceremony, mentorship, exposure, and the opportunity to implement their solutions in real-life settings.

The CircularCityChallenge platform is more than just a competition. It is an educational tool that can help you develop your skills, knowledge, and creativity in the field of circular economy.
