Through the Energy Endeavour Foundation and the EEF team, Louise responds by stewarding student research competitions and awareness activities for regenerative development. With an eye on technology transfers and youth empowerment, the EEF’s core project is the Solar Decathlon Europe (SDE), the premier global student competition for resource-responsible habitation. In this competition, international university teams compete on-site, in record time through ten contests, to design, build, and operate fully efficient dwellings powered by renewables. The EEF is the SDE’s governing body, promoting the framework, quality, and legacy of the SDE. The most recent edition in Wuppertal, Germany (sde21/22) was smashing success with sixteen international teams, and more than 120,000 visitors.
Listen in for more on Louise’s commitment to and belief in our future makers and doers, as they forge a more sustainable built environment.
