Climate, sustainability and the environment at DTU
Held every other year, the GRØN DYST Student Conference is a unique opportunity for DTU students to present their projects to fellow students, their teachers, DTU alumni, as well as invited guests, such as business people and politicians.
In order to register, please submit an abstract (project summary), with your name and address and Student ID number. At the end of the conference, prizes will be presented for the best projects within each category, followed by a party for all participants.
To participate, the project must focus on sustainability, climate technology, or the environment. In addition, the project must be part of a DTU study programme developed between the August 2010 and May 2012 semesters.
Each of the three keywords refer to a number of relevant issues:
Sustainability – e.g. improving the recycling process, reducing waste and minimising consumption;
Climate technology – e.g. reducing impact on the climate, monitoring the sources of climate change, dealing with the effects of climate change; and
Environment – e.g. environmental monitoring, including toxicology, monitoring and reducing emissions, reducing the effects of emissions on the environment.
From abstract to agenda
The GRØN DYST Student Conference is based on the same principles as scientific conferences, where an abstract (project summary) is submitted as part of the registration process. Following the student presentations, an official ceremony is held where prizes for the best projects are awarded within a range of categories. The official ceremony concludes with a party for all participants.
Why do we need GRØN DYST?
Engineers have a crucial role to play in the sustainable development of our society. At DTU, we must continue to educate engineers who are ready and able to contribute to the development of technological solutions that meet current global challenges.
