In the face of an ever-escalating climate crisis, the need for innovative solutions has never been more critical. Now, more than ever, we require a dynamic, multidisciplinary approach to tackle the pressing challenges posed by climate change. The University of Delaware's REEF@UD Eco Entrepreneurship program invites scientists, engineers, policy makers, entrepreneurs, artists, and anyone eager to make a difference to join us in a two-day Eco Sprint dedicated to developing creative solutions for coastal resilience in Delaware and beyond.The sprint, titled Shoring Up Against Climate Change: Design for Coastal Resilience, will be hosted Friday, Oct. 6, from 4pm to 8pm & Saturday, Oct. 7, from 10am to 2pm at the Venture Development Center.

The Eco Entrepreneurship Design Sprint is a dynamic event that aims to harness the collective intelligence, creativity, and passion of a diverse group of participants. This collaborative effort will focus on addressing one of the most pressing environmental issues of our time: coastal resilience.

Teams of University of Delaware students representing various academic backgrounds will come together to tackle this challenge head-on. They will work collectively to find innovative, sustainable, and practical solutions that will not only protect Delaware's coastal areas but also serve as a model for coastal regions worldwide.
