Urban Greenhouse Challenge’ 2 has come to its end

It has been an epic journey in which 53 teams from 79 universities in 29 countries were challenge to design an urban greenhouse for Dongguan, China.

In this international competition organized by Wageningen University & Research, the teams were asked to bring professional food production (back) into urban neighbourhoods integrating social, economic, environmental and technical aspects in one coherent concept. During the intensive ten months, they have received support of international experts, participated in various on-line events and worked hard on their design while withstanding the Covid-19 epidemic. After two selection rounds ten international teams have made it to the Grand Finale that took place on 27 August 2020 on-line and at Wageningen Campus.

The proud winner of the Challenge is Team Bagua, followed by Team KAS (2nd place) and TeAMSpirit (3rd place). Congratulations to the winners, finalists and all teams who were part of this very special edition of the Urban Greenhouse Challenge!
