Check Out The Innovation Jam Hosted By Student Energy In Booth 1107
Student Energy’s Innovation Jam is where big ideas hit the ground running. This interactive session invites people from all fields, geographies, and generations to bring their wicked problems and dive into rapid-fire collaboration. We know what the world’s problems are, it’s time to launch solutions. The brightest business sustainability minds and the world’s most passionate youth will be at GLOBE. Instead of having them sit back and passively listen, the Innovation Jam will give attendees the opportunity to work together. Every participant will have the opportunity to pitch an idea, and dive into harnessing the collective brainpower of the audience to solve our greatest challenges. Innovation happens where perspectives collide.
Take Part in an Energy Simulation Game
Join Energy Futures Lab in The Natural Step booth as they host The Newtonian Shift – a facilitated role-playing simulation that allows players to experience decades of energy transition in one day.
Through dynamic and fast-paced experiential learning, participants are immersed in the country of Newtonia, which finds itself in the middle of an energy transition – energy must be supplied, energy assets developed, and grids upgraded. Energy Futures Lab: The Newtonian Shift is designed to glean insights about the emerging energy transition, develop empathy for various stakeholder challenges, and explore the behaviors, strategic decision-making and business models required for the energy transition that is underway.
