So how did the day unfold?
As a first step, we decided to narrow the SDGs to 5 objectives: #4: Education, #5: Gender Equality, #9-#11: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure & Sustainable Cities and Communities, #12: Responsible Consumption and Production. We gave an introduction about these goals and examples of solutions created by entrepreneurs.
We also had the chance to hear from three students from the International School of Geneva who presented the project they developed during the academic year with the SDG Solution Space:
- The self-sustainable house in Kenya by Benjamin
- Collecting plastics from oceans by Cara
- Improving cargo ship's efficiency by Toril
After selecting a goal, the participants worked in groups to identify problems and design solutions using the Value Proposition Canvas to support their thinking and working processes. In addition to the Lift Team, a group of SDG experts (see below) were present to work with the participants in ideating and framing their solution.
