The theme for this year's event is climate action and sustainability.

Instead of students pitching ideas for projects, this year's Webfest will consist of a selection of challenges. Students will be able to select a challenge and work towards finding a solution within a team. 

The goal is for the CERN Webfest to serve as an exemplar for how people can come together virtually — from all corners of the globe — to collaborate successfully, without the need for long-distance travel with a large CO2 footprint.

Join us via the web — born at CERN — to help improve our world and consider climate issues and the impact of climate action both now and in the future.

Please note that you have to register for the event first.

For those of you who have registered and attended session 1, please log into the Webfest App and select your preference by choosing the challenge you would like to work on by Friday 15th July. We will then organise teams and you can get started working on your challenges! For queries and questions, you can access the Mattermost channels which you can use to communicate with the team and with each other by clicking here.
