On 21 September 2022, the winners of the North Sea Sustainable Innovation Challenge pitched their entrepreneurial projects in a public webinar organised by the Common Wadden Sea Secretariat.

During the online event, Denise Speck, Brian van Es, Ting Xu, Martina Bradáčová and Naf Ahmed exposed the state of the art of their sustainable tourism innovations and reported on the progresses obtained in the context of Campus Fryslân and PROWAD Link’s support programme, which started in May. Participants to the webinar, PROWAD Link partners and friends of the Wadden Sea, enriched the winners' speeches by offering useful insights, feedback and networking opportunities.

A recorded version of the webinar is now available and can be rewatched:


The North Sea Sustainable Innovation Challenge is an initiative of the University of Groningen - Campus Fryslân within the Interreg project PROWAD Link. The challenge called for ideas that contribute to social, economic, environmental and heritage challenges in the North Sea region. Five concepts were selected as winners and were awarded a support programme by PROWAD Link, consisting of workshops, coaching and networking.
