DTU’s student conference on sustainability, the environment and climate technologies was held for the second time on 22 June 2012.

Nearly 400 students presented a total of approx. 150 green projects for businesspeople, politicians, teachers, fellow students and other interested guests at Green Challenge 2012. The 15 panels of judges worked hard to find the eventual winners of the contest who were presented with awards at the official award ceremony by MP Sofie Carsten Nielsen of the Danish Social Liberal Party, deputy chairman of the parliamentary group.

The main prizes of DKK 50,000 were awarded for the best project at BSc and MSc level, respectively, with DKK 50,000 also going to the best MSc thesis and final BSc project. Before the final decision was announced, Anders Lund Madsen entertained the guests with humorous comments and reflections on the engineering study programme 2012.

Green Challenge 2012 saw the participation of both students and teachers—students with projects and teachers from several of DTU’s partner universities serving on judging panels—including KAIST (Korean Institute of Advanced Science and Technology), NTNU (the Norwegian University of Science and Technology), Aalto University, TUM (the University of Technology, Munich), EPFL (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne), CBS (Copenhagen Business School) and KU (University of Copenhagen).

The day ended with a reception for conference participants, other DTU staff and students with beer sponsored by DTU Brewery, followed by a barbecue in Grønnegården and an exciting concert with Malk de Koijn.
