United Nations Sustainable
20 - 22 April, Gothenburg
We all live on this planet.
Everyone, absolutely everyone is dependent on what our planet gives us. And our planet is dependent on the creatures living on it.
We gather companies and organizations that all have something to do with Sustainability and connect them to you, students, to help them and, in turn, help yourself to change our society for the better.
A Black Dot Innovation Weekend gathers students, innovation actors and organizations to tackle challenges, and find innovative and sustainable solutions.
For 3 intensive days, students work on an idea or concept product from a partner company that has something to do with Sustainability.
Students are supported by mentors and given a crash course in innovation processes and tools throughout the event. At the end of the three days, the students pitch their idea and then, starts the implementation phase.
What you do as a student:
Work with real project
To create real value and opportunities
With a real organization

Deliver an evidence-based pitch
What you gain as a student:
The opportunity to make a positive impact with a company
