Green Camp 2023 is for all  candidate students at University of Southern Denmark in Esbjerg  and AAU Esbjerg across study programmes and years. It takes place the 4th to the 6th of October at SDU Campus Esbjerg.

It is a unique opportunity to train your competencies on a real-world case while enjoying a good time with your fellow students, having fun, meeting new people, and making good connections for the future

At the camp you will:

  • Work with a real-world sustainable case from a local company
  • Apply and train your competencies in interdisciplinary groups
  • Get a professional network with stakeholders from the companies
  • Get a social network among your fellow students

You will work with a sustainability case from one of the associated companies in a n interdisciplinary group. Since collaboration and knowledge sharing is key parts of the camp, we will form the groups across study programmes and years.

Each company will present a case within sustainability relevant to their strategy, and each group will be responsible for presenting a possible solution on the case.

There will be prizes for the teams who present the best solutions.

We are looking forward to some fun and educational days!
