GENERATION NOW

Generation Now is the track for 10-18 year-olds with bold ideas who want to go beyond school and beyond protest.

WINNING SOLUTIONS

LIFESAVERS
Track: Public Safety And security
Challenge: Inclusive Safety Communities

The Problem

Dispatchers who are overburdened with incorrect phone calls. 2. The community does not know where to access public safely assistance in a timely way, especially from other members of the community. 3. Youth do not have the skills or credentials to assist people in emergency situations.

The solution

We are going to make a gateway for other, already existing emergency apps. Through our gateway, we want to teach people how to prevent certain situations, like fire, robbery, etc. We also want to teach people what to do in certain emergencies and send them to organizations that can certify them. And with our gateway, we can connect the right person to the right location.

Long term vision

To level up the safety skills of every citizen of the Netherlands.

SIXTEENS
Track: Outcompete Destructive Systems
Challenge: Plastic Pollution to Upcycling Economy

The Problem

Plastic pollution problem is one of the most crucial problems the world could have, next to the unemployment problem, that is significantly grown due to the corona crisis, but how can WE solve it? Read below!

The solution

User of the “Plasti” drop off 5 types of plastic. Scan a QR code and accumulate points and pay whenever and wherever you want. And if you want to transfer points to other people (we call them Users), feel free to do it, because Plasti supports this feature!

Long term vision

Our plan is meant to be embodied step by step in 10 years by increasing the number of pfandomats in the cities, towns, and villages. We expect that numbers of collected plastic should rise significantly, as it becomes profitable for the citizens. Taking into account that pfandomats become profitable for the franchisers in 5.5 years, we encourage them to build more and to collect more plastic 🙂

THE SENATE
Track: Healthcare
Challenge: The Future of Acute Healthcare

The Problem

There is a lack of effective communication between the ER’s, control room, and use of patient files. The lack of information and communication can sometimes mean the difference between life and death.

The solution

We will create an efficient pre-hospital acute care network. By using an online wallet to save a mandate for accessing your patient file, the control room can acces it whenever there is a emergency. By using the just made accessible patient file, AI can analyse the data and support the control room in deciding how much help is needed, from where, and where to bring them to.

Long term vision

A multiple aspect software-based solution, acute care network supported by AI. People have a mandate to access their medical files, stored in a digital wallet solution – provided by team Conduction – the control room can access. The pre-hospital acute care is now most efficient.

GSV
Track: Conscious Cities
Challenge: Conscious Cities

The Problem

The beaches are too often left with a lot of litter. The (already developed) BeachBot can help to keep our beaches clean. The robot uses a game app in which it can learn to annotate and label litter images. The detection algorithm has to be perfected.

The solution

The BeachBot This human-machine interaction concept raises awareness around littering, a worldwide problem with environmental and economic consequences. We want to help BB via the game app in which we annotate and label litter images. We train BB’s detection algorithm by playing the game. We send feedback we will hope to improve the BeachBot. We will also share our ideas for improvement.
