SDG Challenge Portugal

About the Challenge 

The SDG-Challenge Portugal aims to connect students and organizations to address practical issues related to the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We strive to bridge academic knowledge with practical expertise, drawing on insights from students in Portugal and the Netherlands to help Portuguese organizations tackle evolving climate, social, and economic challenges.

This project is a collaboration with SOAPBOX, a company that mobilizes youth and organizations to positively impact the 17 SDGs, crucial areas for a more sustainable, fair, and peaceful future.

The SDG-Challenge's organization has created a unique "pressure-cooker" model, where teams will generate tangible, actionable ideas contributing to one or more SDGs.

The event follows a hybrid format:

  • Two weeks of online activities from September 9 to 20

  • One week of intensive work and refinement of impactful presentations from September 29 to October 5 at Monte dos Três Moinhos in Santa Cruz, Almodôvar.

On October 4, the teams will present their innovative ideas at a grand finale at Castelo de Mértola. Here, they will present their solutions to a jury of professional experts, inspiring each other and the nation.
