Ekothon2 on 1st & 2nd of December 2021

Ekothon2 is a co-creation workshop where we will work most of the time in groups to develop ideas. This year we will develop ideas to help make real-life sustainability projects more successful.

People who attend Ekothon2 will be able to choose between 6 different project groups. The projects span from very local sustainability grassroots initiatives to larger scale regional initiatives. The aim is to develop projects and funding opportunities that can help these initiatives achieve even more! If you take part is Ekothon2, you will help these initiatives but also gain experience and ideas that can inspire you in your work too.


What is your expertise? What are you passionate about? Have a look through the list and see what you would like to contribute to.

It is important that if you sign up for Ekothon2 that you can take part both days (1-2 December) from 0900-1400.

Each group will be facilitated by experienced facilitators who will have been trained in the Ekothon method.
