Registration will be open from 9 January to 6 March 2022. We will select 10 teams to go through to the first phase.
During Phase 1, the 10 selected teams will be invited to participate in the program’s kick-off session on 8, 9 and 10 April. This is an inspiring and intense 3-day event that kicks off the Pangaea X program. It ensures that teams are set on a trajectory to help them reach new heights. The participants will meet the jury, and other young enthusiasts. They will meet the team coach, who will accompany them throughout the journey. The goal is to enable a real and profound transformation of the participants, which will allow them to become the leaders of tomorrow.
DELIVERABLES: At the end of this stage, each team will submit a presentation describing the project by presenting the problem, the proposed solution, its impact on the environment, and a brief economic analysis.
SELECTION: At the end of phase 1, 5 teams will be selected to proceed to phase 2.
In phase 2, each team will further develop the solutions with the help of their team coach and experts. During the first weekend of July, the 5 finalist teams will be invited to Switzerland. This time, in addition to expert advice, their physical and mental fitness will be tested to prepare them for the final expedition. The participants will take part in the final stage of the program from home.
The finalist teams will present their developed solutions to the jury.
At the Awards Ceremony, a ranking of the finalist teams will be established. This will be the right moment to exchange with the jury and the program partners, to develop possible collaborations ! On the same occasion, a two-day public event will be organised. Conferences by different speakers, workshops and stands around the theme of adventure will be organised. In addition, the next edition of the Pangaea X program will be announced.
Your team has until midnight on the 6th of March to present your solution. If your idea is chosen, you will have the opportunity to take part in the Pangaea X program.
