Congratulations to the students below as winners of  Sustainability & Innovation Challenge 2022 by Harvard Undergraduate Clean Energy Group at Harvard University.

Sekolah Ciputra had sent two teams into this competition and there were three winning teams and our two teams were two of the three winners, each winning USD 1,000, as well as mentoring to take their business solution to execution. Wow! This is incredible. 

The Nylem Tree team was:

  1. Claire Faustine
  2. Venezia Ferrari Hartono
  3. Lidya Happy Lians
  4. Cheryl Loemantoro

 The Composting team was:

  1. Regina Felicia Hadiputri
  2. Elizabeth Audrey Winata
  3. Denna Lukmanto
  4. Jesslyn Aurora Leander

The challenge aimed to give students the opportunity to kick-start their sustainability journey with the help of Ivy League mentors and global leaders. Students were given an opportunity to start their Sustainability changemaker journey, come up with solutions to problems, participate in a competition and get Ivy League mentorship as they moved to the final stages of the competition.

The program was an excellent opportunity for our teams who had an interest in the field of sustainability and were keen on learning more about sustainable practices, as well as developing solution-oriented projects to tackle sustainability-related challenges in their communities. All participants received certificates from Harvard Undergraduate Clean Energy Group and Learn with Leaders. 

From the 16th April this is what our teams did: 

  • Attended seminars by HUCEG on the most pressing issues in Sustainability
  • After attending seminars, submitted solutions on one of the three competition theme
  • They were then shortlisted for the Semi-finals where they continued to present their solutions against 25 teams.
  • They then got through to the Finals against 9 other teams and they received project mentorship from Harvard mentors to prepare for this.

What Did the Students Gain?

  • Learnt about sustainability and sustainable practices from Ivy League mentors.
  • Identified problems, worked on a proposal and submitted their solution to enter the competition
  • Semi-finalist and Finalist teams get project mentorship from Harvard mentors
  • Received participation certificates from Learn with Leaders and Harvard Undergraduate Clean Energy Group (HUCEG)
  • As one of the top 3 teams each of our teams received a prize of USD 1,000, as well as mentoring to take their business solution to execution.

We are incredibly proud and happy for these wonderful achievements!
