Clean Oceans Ideathon

In partnership with the Grenfell Campus, Navigate Centre, and the Centre for Research and Innovation, Experience Ventures is presenting to you “Clean Oceans Ideathon”. 

Join this semester's ideathon and create a sustainable solution for oceans’ waste and beach plastics. Get paid to learn, create, and have an impact!

This ideathon is a great chance to work in a team to solve a unique problem and find a sustainable and efficient way to (partially) solve the global problem of water pollution and oceans’ waste. 


Day 1: Ideathon launch

The ideathon’s topic will be presented in more detail and there will be a networking segment where you can meet other participants and form a team.

Day 2: Meet and ideate

Saturday will be reserved mainly for each team to meet and work  on their idea. There will be a session on pitching and mentors will be available to meet with each team and answer any questions about the topic in general or their idea specifically.

Day 3: Pitch day

Teams will have the morning/early afternoon to work on finalizing their pitch that they will be presenting later that day.
