  • Novelty: The focus of your pitch should be your concept. Instead of talking about generic issues, describe a specific problem you want to fix in your neighborhood.
  • Relevance: Your proposal should address climate justice by assisting those who are most at risk from the effects of climate change in developing community resilience.
  • Be ambitious yet realistic when it comes to your idea’s viability; it should be something you could accomplish with a little assistance from a few like-minded individuals.
  • Explain how you will use crowdsourcing to encourage bigger groups of people to participate in advancing your idea, whether through data collection or group action.

The Open17 Challenge will employ these selection criteria at all levels, namely to choose individuals for €100 prizes in August and September 2022 and to pay for travel and lodging for members of the best teams that have been invited to the conference in Geneva in March 2023.
