Moonshot Pirates Vienna

June 25-28, 2022

BOOTCAMP FOR YOUNG CHANGEMAKERS

In only 4 days, 30 young changemakers develop their ideas toward Sustainable Development Goals, grew moonshot confidence, found amazing teams, and worked with mentors from various fields of expertise.

In the end, they pitched their ideas in front of industry experts at the WKÖ Exporttag – Austria’s largest information and networking event on the subject of export and internationalization. Here the winning team presented a taboo-breaking solution of turning human waste into energy. Other finalists also tackled the problem of sustainable energy and logistics in times of crisis.

Check out the collection of memories, big smiles, and unforgettable moments from the 2022 Bootcamp in Vienna.
