PEID 2019 THEME

Our theme this year is the Green Metropolis - we aim to draft project proposals that have the potential to reduce carbon emission in selected cities. You will choose one city in which you will work with a team and identify an environmental problem that is related to at least one of five categories: energy, transportation, water, waste, and food.

There are three components to the competition: a project proposal, an optional prototype, and a lightning talk. You will be guided by experts from all the necessary disciplines to draft a project proposal (it may be a physical product, policy, or both). If applicable, we want a preliminary prototype. The lightning will occur in front of a panel of judges.

The objective of the Princeton Environmental Ideathon (PEID) is to bring together a diverse collection of young individuals passionate about solving environmental issues, and to provide them with the opportunity to debate, collaborate, and ideate.
