Unilever (University of Cambridge) Young Entrepreneurs Award
Being considered for Young Entrepreneur Award.
We know that the world’s problems will only be solved with the ideas and talents of a new generation of leaders and future-makers who are challenging business as usual, and who are the future of sustainability. We see a big opportunity to support, inspire, reward and collaborate with them, to help them scale and grow – both as individuals and as enterprises. That’s why six years ago we started the Unilever Young Entrepreneurs Awards to recognise and support brilliant young innovators tackling the planet’s biggest environmental and social challenges, and to help them achieve scale for impact.
WINNERS Announced September 2019:
GROWING BEYOND EARTH
Submitted to the NASA + Fairchild Botanical Gardens Makers challenge to create a make-a-thon Contest, inspiring new ways to grow food off Earth in the SKY! The Growing Beyond Earth Challenge (GBE) was designed to expand food options and increase plant diversity for spaceflight by evaluating multiple edible plants that meet NASA’s criteria for size and edibility. Using equipment that mimics the environmental conditions aboard the International Space Station, students are testing factors that may influence plant growth, flavor, and nutrition. The Growing Beyond Earth Maker Contest challenges high school, college, and professional participants to develop a growth chamber for edible plants in a confined, microgravity environment where lighting, irrigation and airflow must all be considered. Submissions will be judged by NASA botanists and engineers.
