How can I participate in Green Challenge?

Then you register yourself and your group members. The registration normally opens in January. After that, just be sure to show up on the right date and present your project.


Which requirements must my project fulfill to participate in Green Challenge?

It must be a project you have worked on in relation to your studies at your education. The project must not have been submitted for participation in previous Green Challenge conferences. The project must be rooted in your field of study and it must have social, economic, or environmental sustainability as its focal point.


How many students can participate in one group project?

There are no limits to how many students can register for each project. 


Can I participate with students from other universities than DTU?

DTU Students can collaborate with other BEng, BSc or MSc students from DTU, UCPH, or CBS on projects - or submit their own project. Each of the mentioned universities will also participate with projects made by students but from their university.


When does registration start, and when is the deadline?

Registration normally opens in January and closes in May. See the exact dates for registration and our guide how to sign up.


What do I need to have ready before signing up?

You need provide the following information in the registration formula:

  • Project participants’ information (name, student number, T-shirt size, etc.)
  • Category of the project
  • Abstract

All these information - including the abstract (!) can be updated until the deadline.


Which categories exist and which category does my project belong in?

There are 4 categories based on your level of studies:

Bachelor Course

Bachelor Final Project

Master Course

Master Thesis

Furthermore, you will have to choose which UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) your project fits in. This will not influence the assessment of your project.

Read more about the categories.


What should my abstract look like? 

Your abstract MUST follow the abstract template. Your abstract must be written in English. To find inspiration for your abstract, look in the book of abstracts from 2018. NB! It is very important to write directly in the template and not change font, layout, etc.


Does everyone in my group have to upload the abstract?

No. It is okay for just one of you to upload the abstract as long as the rest of the members in the group indicate who will upload it.
