The climate impact of the construction industry has not been in the focus of attention. Considering its large impact and chare of GHG emissions Globally, in Sweden and in Lund the issue needs to be adressed.

Come as a team or form a new team, you will then use the time for ideation and business model development. Teams will get feedback from experts and you will be able to join workshops and other activities throughout the event. The best ideas will be awarded by a jury at the end of the event.
