The mission of the SDG-Challenge is to inspire and mobilize students and companies to work together on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations (UN). These goals are set to combat climate change and to reduce the inequalities in the world.
“Global challenges, Regional solutions”
The SDG-Challenge divided the Netherlands in five regions. Every region is represented by a team of multi-sectorial students (from different Universities of the region). As an organisation, you can claim a student consultant team that is going to work on your company’s SDG-Challenge.
The organisation of the SDG-Challenge developed a special “pressure-cooker”, so that the teams will come up with tangible and actionable ideas that will contribute to the SDGs.
What SDG-Challenge are the companies and student consultant teams working on? Check it out below!
“SDG-Challenge Applied Sciences” links student consultant teams from the Universities of Applied Sciences (HBO) to business partners with an eye for sustainability to work together on the SDGs.

3. Final @ SDG-House
All university teams are judged on the potential impact on the company
(profit & people), the sector (people & planet) and society (people & planet).
I noticed that the SDGs trigger the students to think better out of the box.
