This year's topic
We are addicted to energy. Our world and lifestyle craves energy. For sending messages, getting from A to B, or simply having a meal. This is a challenge for the battle against global warming. Even though renewable energy sources are rapidly expanding, today we still rely on vast quantities of cheap and dirty energy. This is especially because the world’s demand for energy continues to rise and there is a profit driven interest to produce energy as usual. How can we deal with the increasing demand while simultaneously combat global warming? The challenge is not all about producing green energy – it is also about enhancing and nourishing low-carbon technologies and infrastructure that drive the transition as well as rethink our global demand and individual energy consumption. What we do at GESS is energize students to push for a better future to tackle these challenges with entrepreneurial ideas!
