2019: “Toward a Greener Tomorrow”
Our ability to change the course of our environmental future has never been stronger than it is now! While there seems to be more negative stories about the environment than positive ones, that does not mean there is no hope, far from it actually. Which is why this year we have chosen to focus the Spellman HV Clean Tech Challenge on this greener tomorrow, and the path we will take to get there.
This year, for the first time in Clean Tech history, we have decided to implement categories into our competition. This is due to our large growth over the last few years, and we could not be more excited to introduce this to you! For the 2019 competition, those categories will be: Mitigating the Effects of Climate Change, and Resource Preservation. Together, these topics deal with a wide range of environmental issues affecting the planet, and how we can handle them.
Your challenge is to identify a specific issue, analyze then explain in detail, and design a solution that can mitigate the negative impacts of climate change.
|Identify a specific problem that deals with either the effects of climate change or with protecting resources, and explain the specific impacts on environmental conditions, human health and/or economic impacts.|
|Research and describe the scale of the problem and the affected populations.|
|Analyze the foundations and causes of the specific issue you chose. Investigate, understand in detail, and explain.|
|Design a solution that uses clean technology to address your identified problem, and explain how it would help mitigate the negative impacts of your stated problem.|
