Take action and get involved!

Your  Challenge

In order to keep global warming below 1.5 degrees, achieving carbon neutrality by 2050 is essential. Given the effort required, reaching this goal involves profound changes in our lifestyles. Your challenge will consist in analyzing what this means, in practice, in a given perimeter (a company, a campus, a city, a field of activity...).
You'll have to define and quantify what carbon neutrality means at this scale, what are the viable solutions to achieve it and what is required in terms of investment or organization.

Teams

Teams can include up to seven members. Inter-institution and interdisciplinary teams are strongly encouraged, with a combination of expertise in science and technology, social science, economics, and/ or management.

Project Evaluation

The project will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Definition and ambition of the objective to be achieve
  • Effectiveness and viability of the proposed solutions ( the definition of key performance indicators is expected)
  • Modalities and planning of implementation
