The SRI Idea Market is an opportunity for students, young professionals, and innovators to showcase their sustainability research, advances, concepts, designs, prototypes, and products with the global SRI audience. The invitation to submit videos - presenting an innovative idea on sustainability or carbon removal - for the SRI2023 Idea Market is open until 1 May 2023 (23:59 EST, UTC-5).
The 2023 SRI Idea Market includes two competitions: On sustainability innovation and innovation in carbon removal. Accordingly, SRI2023 will make two cash awards: for the top-rated video on sustainability; and the top-rated carbon removal idea.
(2) Carbon removal category: In 2023, SRI is investing its carbon offset funds in an innovative project that can contribute to the removal of carbon from the Earth’s atmosphere and that can be scaled up to effectively contribute towards the goal of staying within 1.5°C. This competition will be part of the SRI Idea Market. Special consideration will be given to projects that can advance the measurement of carbon removal efforts.
Submissions in both categories can be at the idea stage or can be developed concepts and results. Participants are encouraged to think outside of traditional scientific formats within their video creations and to have fun brainstorming and developing their sustainability idea. They are looking for ideas and initiatives that demonstrate successful and/or innovative transdisciplinary work.
