How can digital tools help improve the acceptability of renewable energy technologies in Finland?

This challenge aims at identifying new digital solutions and tools to overcome the problem of local resistance to renewable energy projects in Finland. The tools developed can be virtual lectures, e-learning courses, educational games, portals with educational resources etc.

How can we use digital tools to improve the acceptability of renewable energy technologies?

Join our DigiEduHack to develop new innovative digital tools for improving the acceptability of renewable energy technologies in Finland! Our challenge aims at identifying new solutions in digital education, to help overcome the problem of local resistance to renewable energy projects. The new creative tools can be virtual lectures, e-learning courses, educational games, portals with educational resources, and forums for practitioners (virtual communities). Join a world-wide community with support from our experienced mentors and get the chance to win awesome prizes!

Why is it important to find a solution to this challenge?

In the next few decades, global greenhouse gas emissions need to decrease considerably if humanity wants to limit global warming to 2 degrees or even 1.5 degrees. Against this background, it becomes evident that there is an urgent need for accelerating the transition towards renewable energy sources. In Finland, like in other EU countries, citizens generally support the transition towards renewable energy technologies. However, at the local level there is increasing resistance towards renewable energy projects, especially in the case of wind power. To decarbonize its economy, Finland needs to increase considerably its share of wind power. Therefore, renewable energy acceptance is key to achieving this goal.

What is the possible impact of a good solution?

This challenge aims at identifying new solutions to overcome the problem of local resistance to renewable energy projects in Finland. The solutions identified need to be based on digital education. There is no strict definition of digital education but it can be understood as any innovative use of digital tools and technologies in teaching and learning. In this challenge we also we understand the term education broadly as the process of facilitating the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits.

What is the expected outcome of this challenge?

We are hoping that our participants will develop concepts or tools for virtual lectures, e-learning courses, educational games, portals with educational resources, and forums for practitioners (virtual communities), that can be used to improve the acceptance of renewable energy in Finland.
