The prizes were delivered by Marie-Guite Dufay, President of the Region Bourgogne Franche Comté.

At the final event of the competition in Strasbourg the five young finalists of PITCH YOUR PROJECT 2023 presented their ideas and answered the audience’s questions on stage.

The audience chose the three winners:

  • 1. The Trash to Treasure project, from Slovenia, revolutionizes the Alpine regions by promoting a circular economy and sustainable collaborations among craftsmen, farmers, and local communities.
  • 2. The Circonference on Climate project , from France, is composed of 10 young artists who created a poignant, poetic show to share a subject that concerns them: global warming.
  • 3. The CO2 Reduction Ascent project , from France, is a jewel that makes the invisible visible and quantifiable by mechanically quantify the CO2 emissions of the person wearing it.
  • 4. The CRCL project , from Italy, wants to move away from mass tourism and the commercialization of the mountains, by creating a clothing line specifically for young people. The project seeks to instill in them an appreciation for the values associated with going to the mountains: simplicity, sharing, and effort.
  • 5. The POST ALPE project, from Italy, seeks to rejuvenate fading traditional rural practices within alpine communities. It repositions manual labor as a collective endeavor and fosters community participation. Central to the project are intergenerational co-design workshops that reintegrate crafts into society through engagement with public spaces.
