Shape the question that shapes the Future

Tomorrow is full of big questions. Questions on sustainability, health and energy. And the biggest is about human life on this planet. What sort of future are we heading towards, what can we do? Not to change it, but to shape it? It’s this question that has led University College Groningen to create a hub where (high school) students, academics, entrepreneurs and people from different walks of life come together to discuss what they think ar the big (and small!) questions that matter, but also to inspire each other with their work – be that a high school assignment or a new and sustainable business plan.

We call this hub The Innovation Generation. The Innovation generation is a collective of people who want to make a difference. People who know that they are the ones who shape the future, and want to make this world more sustainable in every meaning of the word possible.

We want to host academics who are looking for a podium to share their research, but also entrepreneurs who want to inspire others with their stories on how they run a sustainable corporation. We want to host anyone who has a story they want to share!

Shape the question that shapes the future

Tomorrow is full of big questions. Questions on sustainability, health and energy. And the biggest is about human life on this planet. What sort of future are we heading towards, what can we do? Not to change it, but to shape it? It’s this question that has led University College Groningen to create a project for today’s young people. A challenge to use different perspectives to come up with innovative ideas for the biggest problems we will face as a society. And we call it, the Innovation Generation.

This year, the Innovation Generation is inviting 16-18 year old high school students in the Netherlands to come up with new and creative questions, and answers, for one of tomorrow’s biggest challenges: food sustainability.
