"SDG Education Program of the Year" Award - Entrepreneurship and Engagement in Higher Education.
The Sustainability Challenge received the "SDG Education Programme of the Year" award for the outstanding design and innovation-promoting learning setting of the cross-university course. On the one hand, it succeeds in placing the Sustainable Development Goals in the focus of all activities and developing creative approaches to solutions.
