The final projects of the Future League
Among numerous classroom projects from all over Europe, in which teachers and their students implement one or more of the 17 UN goals for sustainable development in STEM lessons, an international jury has selected ten teams, each consisting of three students and two teachers, for the Future League final on the 24th of November 2023 in Berlin. On this page, we present the ten final projects that deal with the topics of environmental protection and sustainability in a particularly creative way.
