This program is an activity of the UNESCO Global Action Programme (GAP) on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD)

Important Notice!

The finalists will be determined according to the following ‚Personal Activity Indicator’ algorithm:


  1. The entrant’s personal engagement among the Entrepreneurship Campus community by commenting and giving advices to other entries.
  2. The number of meaningful comments the entrant’s idea/ project has received from the online Entrepreneurship Campus community.
  3. The number of online courses and related exercises in entrepreneurship education (9 courses in total) the entrant has taken. The online training is free of charge.
  4. Special assignments the entrant has done. Special assignments in entrepreneurship education will be given to members of the Entrepreneurship Campus as the Competition goes onward. Special assignments will be posted on the News & Blog webpage.
  5. The number of votes the entrant’s idea/ project has obtained by 31 August, 2017.

The ‘Personal Activity Indicator’ clearly and deliberately rewards entrants who participate actively within the Entrepreneurship Campus. A bar will be displayed at the top of each single entry once that entry is accepted and posted on the Competion website. This bar ‚measures’ on a scale of 0-10 (0 stands for ‘no activity’ and 10 for ‘excellent activity’) the activity factor of each entrant in relation to all other entrants’ activities within the Entrepreneurship Campus. In that respect, the beam of the bar (0-10) may not permanently increase as the competition goes onward, but can also decrease again, depending on the entrant’s active engagement in comparison to its fellow entrants within the Entrepreneurship Campus online community.

(The weighting of the five determinants above are not made public, in order to avoid some manipulation).

      Dear Kusum,
      Don’t worry, because your project is open voting and commenting as it is published in the ‘Best Projects 2017’ category. When you vote, it isn’t possible to see the vote button for 24 hours. You have to be more active with the other member of the campus by commenting their entries and sharing meaningful suggestions. You may also ask your friends to support you. They need to register in order to vote or comment your project. We wish you luck.

    Does it matter when does one join the competition, because for sure some people can join later, which is a challenge to obtaining voters. so does this competition regulations cater for that as well?

    • Profile photo of Campus Administrator

      Dear Oguta Job Francis,
      As you can see on the website timeline, the deadline for votes and comments is on August 31 while the deadline for entries is on July 31. Votes are only one of the factors that define the finalists of the competition. Please, find here more information about the way how the finalist will be determined.

    Please I want to find out if one person can vote twice?

    • Profile photo of Campus Administrator

      Dear Emmanuel, here you can find an explanation of the voting system. Anyone that wants to cast a vote, will need to authenticate him/herself with an email double option.
      They will insert their email, and a verification URL will be sent to them. After clicking the URL, they’ll have 15 minutes of time to vote for a given idea/project once a day. After this session expires, they can no longer vote, until the upcoming day (24 hours later). Someone can vote more than one entry during the 15 minutes time limit, but only one entry in 24 hours.

    Dear Campus-Manager,
    I suggest we build an app for this platform to make more mobile friendly . what do you think. It’s can be a special assignment for this Bach competitors. The last online training I watched taught me how to make work interesting at the same time profitable. So I suggest we create a mobile app for this platform. You have a good team to this year to do this.

    Thank you
