What is GESS?
The Global Entrepreneurship Summer School (GESS) is a seven-day program where 140 university students come together in Munich, Querétaro (Mex.), Shanghai and Cape Town to develop entrepreneurial solutions that meet the world’s biggest challenges. In the spirit of promoting “billion euro projects to take climate action”, we work on the UN Sustainable Development Goals aiming to empower students to become young responsible leaders who create positive change in our society. This year’s topic is "oceans & waters". Challenges and solutions might range from: rising water temperature and sea levels, no access to clean water, hydroenergy, water pollution or increasing demand for freshwater.
