Read below about the 3 kinds of innovations that qualify for the competition.
Project based Have you ever created a grey water management system in your house or in your neighborhood? Have you ever installed solar panels in your house? Have you ever made a recycling system for your house or your community? Have you ever created a native plant garden or wildlife habitat at your school or home? If you have taken on any of these projects or other projects related to sustainability, such a project qualifies for our competition. Your project can be at any stage – idea stage, start-up phase, or a recently completed project. Tell us (and show us!) about your project and why it is a Super Sustainable Innovation.
Technological invention Are you an inventor or innovator of existing technologies? Have you ever thought that some machines could work better a different way? Currently we take most of our energy from petroleum and so we desperately need other ways to harness energy. Waste management? Did you know that Sweden now recycles 99% of their waste by converting it to usable energy? Have you ever participated in any Citizen Science technological innovation, or made a website or digital tool to raise awareness about an environmental issue? If you have an idea for, or have already created a Technological Innovation and would like to spread the word about it, then tell us about it as your SSI. Be sure to explain your innovation well, and include shots of any designs/drawings/models/webpages that you may have in your video.
Social movement Not all forms of change come in physical forms. To change the way we do things we must first change the way we see things. Social Movements have often been the catalyst for paradigm shift that then leads to a cultural change, this is as important today as any other technological invention or project geared towards environmental sustainability. If you have ever, or would like to create a Social Movement that promotes sustainability on any level then you can submit this as your SSI.
