The Winners are
This year instead of a first and a second place, we had 2 first places, because it was a hard decision:
There is a lack of transparency for individuals to evaluate their constant footprint to climate change.
The idea is to create an app that blends:
- gamification of a CO2 tracker like tamagotchi „daily impact“
- an app that is similar to runtastic / pinterest where your one-time improvements can be shared with your community.
- when your one-time change if repeated for X amount of times becomes a “habit” like a badge.
- Saved Co2 or money can be invested in renewable projects „following“ & „crowdfunding“
- (Pokemon) which again will impact your ranking on climate impact.
City jungle makes it its mission to bring nature back to the cities.
By making unused vertical surface usable to tackel climate change with sustainable resources and
the power of plants.
Our purpose is the fabrication of a lignin based fertilizer. The biopolymer lignin, which is a main component of wood resumes as by-product of the pulp and paper industry. It can be enriched with nitrogen to build up soil organic matter and used as a fertilizer with slow nitrogen release properties.
Solar & Sea
Solar & Sea is a concept to harvest and store PV power on the high sea with converted cargo ships. The ships lay flexible and self floating organic PV foil on the ocean surface and convert the collected power into CO 2 neutral and transportable hydrocarbon using Powerto-X technology on the ship. Due to the mobility of the ships, they always operate in areas with highest solar radiation on earth.
Green Chain Logistics (GCL)
GCL is a B2B platform that connects businesses, with transport
companies that offer CO2 neutral transport, or has a very low level of
GHG emissions. The mode of transport is verified by sensors that track
the products and the information is saved in the Blockchain. Finally,
the product receives
a quality seal and a QR code the end customer can scan and check the mode of transport, and its GHG emission savings.
We are tackling the waste that stems from single-use take away boxes through a circular system for reusable food containers. We are acting as a middleman who provides restaurants with reusable boxes, handles their logistical distribution and the washing process.
We play change and will produce educational media content presented by role-models on modern channels in The FUNKY way in order to reach the goal of personal development through playful learning and the purpose of that all is to have more people doing more sustainable decisions in the future.
We are going to change the mobility sector towards a sustainable e-mobility because we believe in the pioneer’s spirit in all of us. We are combining the advantages of electric cars and bicycles in one product, the SHARK-Bike and will potentially save 1,24 million tons of CO2 annually in Austria.
Changing consumer & business perceptions towards waste. Realise that “waste” is a valuable raw material for other processes. Promoting Circular Economy practices in big cities throughout the world. Using waste to produce food and medicine in controlled environment agriculture, using closed loop Indoor Urban Agriculture.
We revolutionize the access to clean cook stoves. By developing mobile workspaces, sharing the technology and production techniques for our affordable super-efficient stoves. For the people who need it the most, we created a financing-model by generating CO2-Certificates.
The Gravitational Tower aims to produce energy out of falling masses. It is independent of any other source of energy.
We develop indoor climbing holds out of natural resources and waste materials in order to provide an alternative to conventional holds based on quartz sand and epoxy resin. The surface shows a natural appearance and grip, which offers the climber a new training alternative.
The Sustainability Adventure
Our idea is an innovative multi-stakeholders education project that
turns travelers into Sustainable-Development-Goal(SDG)-Reporters. During
their cooperative, CO2-friendly journey, they are on a mission to find
global sustainability challenges and inspirational SDG solutions and
share them via social media via story-telling with partner classes at
home as well as with political decision-makers.
During the journey, co-produced SDG-impact maps with documentation of all explored local and global SDG challenges are created, collecting concrete hope-giving solutions to sustainability.
ClimateLaunchpad was established in 2014 and is part of the entrepreneurship offerings of
EIT Climate-KIC and operates on a global scale, currently in over 40 countries.
