CEC 2023 Participants

Ideas and projects of the CEC 2023 participants

From August 14th to November 17th, the Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition participants had time to work on their ideas and projects with our free courses and materials, develop them further, network, exchange knowledge in the Campus Community and collect votes.

For the first time, the CEC ran with a shortened programme (3 months) on our new website; in our interactive Entrepreneurship Campus. We are delighted to present the participants and their concept-creative ideas and projects even after the end of the CEC 2023:

Water Light Technology

The project I've passionately undertaken revolves around harnessing cutting-edge technology and sustainable practices to create innovative solutions that address pressing challenges within communities. With a strong focus on transforming waste recycling and environmental conservation, my project aims to revolutionize industries while fostering positive social and economic impacts. At the heart of the project is the groundbreaking Salt Water Light Innovation, a visionary concept that utilizes ionized electrolytes derived from saltwater to convert magnesium into electrical energy. This revolutionary technology not only offers a cleaner and more sustainable source of electricity but also has the potential to significantly reduce carbon footprints. By transforming waste materials and utilizing readily available resources, the technology opens doors to affordable and accessible energy solutions. Moreover, my project extends beyond technological innovation. It centers on creating employment opportunities and empowering communities. Through the implementation of the Water Light Technology, I aim to create high-quality jobs, particularly for youth, and promote the inclusion of women in various roles. This approach not only addresses unemployment but also contributes to gender equality and social upliftment. A cornerstone of the project is aligning with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The initiative directly supports several SDGs, including affordable and clean energy (SDG 7), decent work and economic growth (SDG 8), and sustainable cities and communities (SDG 11). By targeting these goals, my project seeks to bring about positive change on multiple fronts, fostering economic development, environmental responsibility, and social progress. Through my project, I envision a future where communities thrive on sustainable energy solutions that not only meet their needs but also drive economic growth. By leveraging technology, community engagement, and sustainable practices, I am determined to make a lasting impact that resonates across regions and inspires others to embrace innovative and eco-conscious solutions.

Given the digital world prevails, human’s life is growing more and more transparent in lack of basic privacy and human right protection. More and more people, particularly the Z generation and children are easily subject to harassment or bully from vicious netizen who exploits the security imperfectness of the computer information network. The project is set to design an information security protection system based on big data analysis to build up constant firewalls to shield off deliberate offence, cyber bully and violation of basic human rights and build a harmonious and sustainable digital world.

Photovoltaic (PV) devices, which convert solar energy into electricity, are ideal for offsetting carbon emissions and provide an alternative way to meet the growing demand for energy consumption. Perovskite solar cells (PSCs) are third-generation solar cells that use perovskite organic metal halide semiconductors as light-absorbing materials. PSCs offer higher photovoltaic conversion efficiency than other solar cells and lower initial investment costs. The aim of our idea is to apply PSCs in Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV), thereby enhancing its power generation efficiency, adding more renewable energy generation and making the world a greener place.

Carbon trading is a practice that existed for decades. There are highly successful regional trading markets internationally. However, it was to our team’s surprise, after fully delving into this topic, that there is no global carbon trading market even in a year like 2023 when dual carbon goals have evolved so drastically and vibrantly. To introduce our topic, we must first reiterate some of the basics of carbon trading. On December 12, 2015, the European Union (EU) and 195 countries agreed to adopt the Paris Agreement (PA), a revolutionary and monumental legally binding treaty as the outcome of the 21st session of the Conference of Parties (COP.) “The PA does not replace but complements the UNFCCC [United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change] … In order to enter into force, the PA has to be ratified by 55 parties to the UNFCCC covering a minimum 55% of global emissions.” (Bodle-PA analysis-2016) By introducing the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), PA set a never-been-reached standard for the world about reducing carbon emissions and the detrimental effects of greenhouse gas. “In contrast to the top-down approach to setting climate and emissions targets implemented under the Kyoto Protocol, the Paris Agreement (PA) adopts a bottom-up approach in which each country sets out the mitigation contributions it pledges to undertake to reduce its emissions. Specifically, each ratifying party must submit and communicate a nationally determined contribution (NDC) describing its mitigation contributions and climate actions…” (Fattouh- A6-2022) To say that NDCs or the PA is monumental would be an understatement. It encouraged the world’s redemption from sins to nature. The PA unified nations’ aims or ambitions toward carbon neutrality.
