YuSU student team has reached the final of the international competition «Urban Greenhouse Challenge: Reforest»
Urban Greenhouse Challenge: Reforest is an international competition for student design projects for innovative multi-storey greenhouse complexes in an urban environment.
Objectives of the competition : search for innovative technical and technological projects for accelerated forest restoration after fires and felling
The team brought together bachelor's degrees students majoring in "Ecology and Environmental Management", "Chemistry", "Linguistics", striving not only to help solve the global problem of forest fires, but also to create an eco-complex accessible to people with disabilities.
The theme of the competition is very close to YuSU students, according to the Ministry of Emergency Situations, a fire hazard season is declared in the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug-Yugra in the spring.
“We decided to take part in the competition, as we are fully aware of the global nature of the problem of forest fires and deforestation. Unfortunately, we cannot stop this process, but we can make our contribution to reforestation. This is the main goal of our project,” says team captain Anna Svinteeva.
