CIRCULAR INNOVATION CHALLENGE 2023

What is CIC?

Circular Innovation Challenge (CIC) is an innovative hackathon organized by the School of Global Studies at Thammasat University.  CIC cultivates new generation of innovators, changemakers, and thought leaders in Circular Economy by bringing together thousands of young people from Southeast Asian countries to engage in intensive workshops on circular economy and design thinking bootcamp dedicated to Circular Innovation. Throughout the program, participants submerge themselves in sustainability challenges, break down the problems, and rapidly generate potential solutions.  The ultimate goal of the challenge is to plant seeds in young minds of the importance of circular innovations for solving pressing sustainability challenges within the region, as well as globally.
