Young sustainability professionals: Participate in our virtual Idea Market!

The Sustainability Research and Innovation Congress 2021 (SRI2021) provides an exciting opportunity for students, young professionals and innovators to share their sustainability advances, concepts, designs, prototypes and products in a global Virtual Idea Market. Participants in the Idea Market are invited to upload a short, 3-minute video or digital presentation of their idea to the SRI2021 Virtual Market. Submissions can be at the idea stage and do not need to be developed concepts or demonstrate results. Participants are encouraged to think outside of traditional scientific formats within their video creations and to have fun brainstorming and developing their sustainability idea. Submissions will be made available for all SRI2021 attendees to preview online before Idea Market sessions. Each Idea Market session will feature an open forum where submitters can present their idea in a short pitch and take questions from the audience. This session is an opportunity to share ideas, network and garner interest in potential concepts. The submissions will be reviewed and there will be an award for the top two videos.
