About the Event

Sustainability is one of the most pressing challenges our society is currently facing. It is therefore crucial that humanity continues to try to find ways to tackle this immense challenge.

This event was hosted by TEAM SY and Barnsley DMC, bringing together creative minds from across the region to innovate and create new ideas for a sustainable future. 

In 48 hours, participants had the opportunity to explore innovative ideas, build disruptive solutions, learn new skills and connect with like-minded people. They had industry expertise and coaching support throughout. Participants were tasked to come up with a prototype for a product or service, presenting drawings, slides and even videos. At the end, they pitched their ideas to a panel of industry experts, for a chance to go home with a prize!
