The Business Sustainability Challenge

The Business Sustainability Challenge

The Challenge!

The Business Sustainability Challenge will be a ‘Solve the Problem’ activity using situations from real businesses, in partnership with PECT. Education settings will have the chance to learn about some of the sustainability issues local businesses are facing. In an Apprentice style bid, students will be given a choice of several different challenges from which they will need to decide which one they would like to address.

The students will then be given the opportunity to go away, research and prepare a solution, before pitching it back. The winning idea/concept will be chosen by a panel of experts in both sustainability and from the chosen business/industry.

Ideal for students from Secondary up to (but not including) University age. This Challenge will be available to educational settings across the East Region. Teams must be no more than 6 students but can be supported by a nominated member of staff/responsible adult.
