UN SDG Number 12

Responsible Consumption and Production


UN SDG 12 is an initiative to contribute to a more sustainable production and consumption. Our initative brings together students from all disciplines in the Region Västra Götaland to work together with private and public organizations to explore new solutions and create value based on the partner organizations’ challenges.


For three (3) intensive days students work on an idea or concept product from a partner company that has something to do with production or consumption.


During the weekend students get a crash course in innovation processes and tools from our innovation experts and mentors. At the end of the weekend all teams pitch their idea.

The most driven teams that want to continue working on the project will be accepted to a six (6) month program where we provide innovation support and mentorship to make sure that students implement the idea and create real value for themselves and others.

What you do as a student:

  • Work with real project

  • To create real value and opportunities

  • With a real organization, entrepreneur or researcher

  • Deliver an evidence based pitch

What You Gain as a Student:

  • The opportunity to make a positive impact with a
    organization, entrepreneur or researcher

  • Work experience for your resume

  • Valuable connections for the future

  • Experience in realizing an idea

  • Knowledge in innovation and entrepreneurial processes

And afterwards?

If you and your team want to continue to work on your project as many other students have done before we offer continued innovation support for up to 6 months. This is your true chance to create real value both for yourself and others.
