What is INESPO?

INESPO is an international submission-based competition for environmental solutions from secondary school students. It challenges students, working in teams, to submit projects that use a thoroughly integrated approach to provide solutions that protect and enhance the environment.

They see the possibility to develop project-based education concepts to teach 21st century transdisciplinary environmental skills to their students.
