Urban Greenhouse Challenge 2019

After the success of the first Urban Greenhouse Challenge, we are happy to announce that Wageningen University & Research organizes the second edition of this international student competition. Registration is now open. In 2018, as many as 23 teams with students from nearly 40 universities in 10 countries battled to design the ultimate urban greenhouse. An impression of the exciting finals can be found here.

 

In this second edition, students are being challenged to design an iconic and circular urban greenhouse for an exciting location in the Greater Bay Area in China. Their design has to (1) produce safe and healthy food for the local neighbourhood and commercial markets, and (2) stimulate a healthy lifestyle and interactions with city dwellers. This interdisciplinary Challenge is open to student teams from all around the globe and will be organized every other year. We encourage teams to include students from different faculties and universities to ensure they cover all relevant disciplines and have a greater chance of making it to the finals.

 More information can be found in the flyer and of course on our website.
