What is a local challenge?

  • Any local problem or risk that affects your society and/or your environment.
  • The problem affects specific societal groups or society as a whole, or both.
  • The problem is not sufficiently addressed neither by the government nor by ‚traditional‘ businesses.
  • You may take the lecture from Jeroen de Vries as an inspiration for the scope of possible challenges. However, your challenge does not have to be landscape-related in the first place.
