WGSM team has launched another environmental project: the Do More Idea Competition, which aims to further green the EHF EURO 2022, began on 22 February. We are looking for innovative and creative ideas on how to further reduce the carbon footprint of the tournament and the festival programmes built around it. We implement the best idea and the jury also awards special prizes.
Teams of 2-5 high school students, college students, university students, young workers and innovators are welcome to apply for the Do More Idea Competition – so the opportunity is open to everyone.
We are thinking of initiatives or business model innovations that will help to further green the event: solutions that help reduce or use waste generated during the festival and the European Championship, or projects that affect the energy supply of the festival.
We are not talking to the wind, we are talking about the air: we will realize the best idea in the end!
So the brainstorming has started, but we will also organize a workshop on the topic in March, and the participants of the top 15 teams will be invited to another workshop in April, where we will provide concrete and targeted help to develop the ideas as professionally as possible.
At the end of April, the entries will be held on a separate competition day, at which time we will also announce a result: we will implement the first place idea from May, and we will also announce several special prizes.
The winners will automatically be admitted to one of the „greentech” startup programmes of the Climate Innovation Community, receive free business development mentoring training, in addition to receiving prizes, match and festival entries.
The members of the jury will be Bálint Vékássy, Secretary General of the Hungarian Olympic Committee, dr. László Papp, Mayor of Debrecen, dr. Szabolcs Bíró, head of the organizing committee of EHF EURO 2022 in Hungary, Márton Székely, goalkeeper of the Hungarian men’s handball team and Péter Puskás actor and musician.
