Sustainable Development Competition: "Inventing the World of Tomorrow"

Do you have a project that rethinks the use of consumer goods, manages resources differently, saves energy, reduces carbon footprints ... in short, a project that invents the world of tomorrow? Enter the competition and offer your solutions for implementing good environmental practices for all!

Organized by the magazine Research, with the support of ADEME and Bouygues Immobilier, the contest is open to all students, individually or in groups, as part of a curriculum framed by a teacher or as part of a free application. Major themes showcased during this contest include: sustainable consumation, reducing waste, conserving natural resources, and adapting the best environmental practices. Candidates may submit their applications from January 2015 until April 2015.

There will be three winners awarded. The award ceremony will take place on May 21, 2015 at the National Centre of Arts and Crafts (CNAM) in Paris. The best projects will be awarded by a panel of the ADEME Bouygues, real estate magazine La Recherche, and evaluated by experts according to specific criteria: interest, feasibility, originality, relevance, and the presentation and form of the project. Three prizes will be awarded: one worth 2500 euros and giving the winner the opportunity to support a project for one year by the Sustainable Development Director of Bouygues Immobilier, a second prize worth 1500 euros and a third prize of 1000 euros.
