Application Deadline SDG Challenge

Gain experience as a sustainability consultant!


The mission of the HvA SDG-Challenge is to inspire and mobilize students and organizations to work together on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations (UN). These goals are set to combat climate change and to reduce inequalities in the world.

Multidisciplinairy student teams partner up with a leading company to work together on a SDG-Challenge of a company. By doing so, we are aiming at contributing to the business and providing the students with the tools to act as a sustainability consultant.

The organization of the SDG-Challenge developed a special "pressure-cooker", that enables teams will to come up with tangible and actionable ideas that will contribute to the SDGs.

During the final, the groups will present their results to a professional jury, alongside the organizations.

In addition to the CET SDG Challenge, there is also a national HBO SDG Challenge.
