In a period where you would normally be studying for your upcoming future, we miraculously came across this wonderful contest. Having heard and studied about environmental issues in our academic studies, this contest was the perfect fit for us. Participants would be given a certain topic from the SDGs and our challenge was to come up with a business plan that solves the matter within 12 hours. One advantage of this contest is that it is a one-day event, meaning that the participation of this event wouldn’t strongly interfere with your other schedules, especially if you are a student preparing for university. The biggest advantage ,though, is that you are able to compete with high school students not only from Japan, but from the entire globe. Coming up with a business plan is obviously not an easy thing to do. It was also our first time having to read such amount of academic/ scientific papers and references that isn’t necessarily our speciality. Nevertheless, you would never get the fulfilment and joy when you click that submit button after a long 12 hour effort other than the GEC. Students who are reading this, why not have a try?
