Living in environmentally challenging times can be a motivational stimulus for climate friendly change and innovation. For younger people in our societies, a static climate is not taken for granted, and, therefore, neither is the access to the most iconic landscapes and ecosystems. Beyond the underlying question of social and climate justice, more and more companies, investors and entrepreneurs are realising that climate friendly initiatives are a real option for economic sustainability.

That is why Climate-KIC has launched the 9th Edition of Europe’s largest climate innovation and entrepreneurship summer school: The Journey. During July and August over 300 highly passionate young innovators from across the world will come together in summer schools across European locations to collaborate, ideate and develop the skills to create innovative and sustainable business solutions to one of the world’s greatest societal challenges: climate change.

Madrid’s Climate-KIC Journey is organized by the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, and will be hosting 40 students with a wide diversity of academic backgrounds. For two weeks, the participants will develop their innovative ideas, with the support of experts and field visits. A very comprehensive program, going from creative thinking lessons to business design workshops, will be the base for their final project. The training includes the meeting with ground-breaking entrepreneurs, which will serve to inspire and further encourage the 40 future climate entrepreneurs. Madrid’s stage ends with a pitch survey, where participants will present their ideas in front of a jury that provide expert feedback. The group will then head to Sofia, where the Journey will come to an end with the final evaluation of the new ideas to tackle climate change.
