SDG Student Ambassadors HUB
The SDG Student Ambassadors Denmark was founded at DTU Skylab in October 2017 and is a voluntary initiative – by students, for students, each with individual interests and backgrounds, from different universities. The ambassadors want to mobilize and engage people to work towards the Sustainable Development Goals and make an impact.
In 2019 they started to run, in collaboration with Sustainary, the SDG Student Ambassadors Hub located where the SDG Student Ambassadors was founded: DTU Skylab.
Each year the SDG Student Ambassadors Hub will focus on a specific SDG.
In 2019, our first year running the Hub, the topic chosen is:
SDG 12: Responsible Consumption, specifically plastics.
Mini Plastic Hackathon
Our first event was in collaboration with Student and Innovation House where over 30 young people met to discuss and brainstorm about solution on how to better use plastic. Sustainary had two experts on the subject coming to share their work and innovative ideas as inspiration. Six student ideas were presented, received feedback, and were encouraged to continue working on their projects. The best solution received the night’s prize.
Power of Today’s Change
Our second event was a huge success that came from the great collaboration with Sustainability Influencers and Student Talks. University of Copenhagen professor Mickey Gjerris, started the event speaking on sustainability, the environment and the ethics concerned with those topics.
Later, 3 student presentations took place: Hannah von Czettriz on Zero Waste, João A. B. R. Møller on Engagement with the SDGs, and the founders of SAGA on Sustainable Space Architecture.
The event ended with 5 workshops where participants could discuss deeper about subjects such as Zero Waste and Minimalism.
