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 10th Edition of Europe’s largest climate innovation and entrepreneurship summer school: The Journey. During July and August over 400 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 Quixote Journey is organized by the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and Universidad de Valencia, and will be hosting 40 students with a wide diversity of academic backgrounds. For four weeks, the participants will follow this Journey starting at Madrid, passing by Valencia and ending in Hambourg, and in the route they will develop their innovative ideas, with the support of experts and field visits. A very comprehensive program, going from climate change science to creative thinking and 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. At the final stage, in Hamburg, Quixote students will meet with other groups, they will present their ideas before a jury, and get valuable feedback from experts from international companies, universities and organizations.
