What is Green Challenge?

Green Challenge is an educational initiative at DTU. The aim is to ensure that future engineers integrate aspects of sustainability, climate technology, and the environment in their work.

The Green Challenge student conference is your chance to showcase your own project. It is your opportunity to be inspired by fellow students and networks that include some of the country’s top minds devoted to environmental sustainability.

The conference is your unique chance to meet other DTU students and representatives from different businesses, all of which are professionally engaged in different areas of sustainability, the environment and climate technology.

The conference itself awards cash prizes for the best projects—money that can be used to further development of your own project. The Green Challenge student conference ends on a festive note with a barbecue for all conference participants.

Want to join in?

To participate, you must have developed a project whose theme is sustainability, climate technology or the environment as part of your studies at DTU. The manner in which the theme is incorporated into the project is entirely up to you. You can participate with specific product ideas such as an eco-friendly mobile phone charger technology, optimization processes or research findings.

There are no limitations, provided you focus on an aspect of sustainability, the environment or climate technology. In other words, you must be able to defend that the project solves, or contributes towards solving, a green problem.

All DTU students are encouraged to participate with green projects, regardless of study programme or educational level. The conference is also open to overseas guest students at DTU.

The next Green Challenge conference is June 28, 2019. We look forward to seeing you!

In addition to the conference itself, Green Challenge runs activities throughout the year at DTU. Green projects from previous Green Challenge competitions or projects that may compete in the next competition are regularly exhibited in the library. Watch the presentation videos here.


Take up the challenge!

Engineers play an essential role in ensuring sustainable social development. DTU engineers can and must continue contributing towards developing technological solutions that address global challenges. This is why DTU holds Green Challenge.
