The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), or the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. The mission of the SDG-Challenge is to connect and mobilize students and organisations to work together on these Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations (UN).

Ten teams of ten Dutch Universities of Applied Sciences team up with a leading company to work together on a SDG-Challenge of the company. During the challenge, you and your team consisting of (international) students with mixed backgrounds will work on creating a solution for your organization’s SDG-Challenge. The goal is to come up with a solution that not only impacts your company, but also the sector as a whole and the SDGs. In order to ensure a practical approach, Soapbox developed the ‘SDG pressure cooker’. By following this method, the teams will go from the initial challenge to actual tangible and actionable ideas in a short period of time. To ensure a smooth progression, Soapbox will guide the participants in this process.
During the final, all teams will present their solution in front of a professional jury. The team with the biggest potential impact wins!
SDG-Challenge UAS is a platform of Soapbox and aims to trigger students to pursue a career in making the world more future-proof and to make organisations use the solutions to “sustainalize” their businesses
