Why Ecothon?

Does the climate crisis impassion you? Do you wish you could design and innovate in a uniquely environmental way?

 

Ecothon 2021 is an online two-day design conference for high school students. The challenge? Design, in teams, a self-sustaining, eco-friendly, and habitable structure based on the principles of Human-centered design.

 

Collaborate with like-minded high-school students from around the world and interact with university professors and experts in the field. No prior knowledge needed. A true learning experience.

 

The reward? Your name, headshot and your team's ideas will be featured on our website. If your team is in the top five, you will be distinctly featured. You will receive a certificate of participation. If you are a winner, you will receive an additional winner's certificate. 

 

Additionally, after the 2-day Ecothon, if you are interested in continuing your association with us, you will have the opportunity to join the Ecothon founders’ design lab and work on your ideas in real life over the next 6 months with them and other chosen participants. If your team is one of the top five finalists, you will be automatically eligible to join and if not, you can still apply.

 

We aren't interested in your money. We want your energy, your ideas, and your passion.
