YES 2013 is a competition and prototyping workshop for young people who want to help solve specific environmental and social challenges. We bring together 100 engineers and 50 creative minds from all over Europe.

So if you feel like something different – then it’s time. Join us for some REALLY exciting days with innovation, networking and breaking boundaries in focus.

This year Roskilde Festival has posed 11 challenges that need some heavy duty problem solving.
At Roskilde Festival 130.000 people gather for partying. During three weeks a ‘city’ emerge at the festival ground where all everyday activities are covered. Every year the festival has huge challenges with waste, sanitation, cooling food and getting sufficient electricity etc. These kinds of challenges need sustainable solutions so the overall theme of YES 2013 is sustainable living.
The challenges of Roskilde Festival are not unlike the challenges of a refugee camp or other places where you have large groups living together. So the perspectives of solving these challenges go much beyond the festival.

Therefore the solutions must not only be sustainable, but also be possible to implement and upscale outside Roskilde Festival.

To be part of YES 2013 we need you to submit an application. Please be aware of all practical information below.

See you at YES 2013!
