Description

How can we make current funerals more sustainable and leave something positive for the people and the planet? This was the central question in the Final Footprint Challenge. The initiators were Dela and Yarden, the two largest funeral organizations in the Netherlands. We helped to find innovative solutions for sustainable funerals.

Approach

The first phase of this innovation program was focused on scouting and generating innovative solutions. Innovators coming from all backgrounds were invited to think about the funeral of the future. Many ideas were gathered, and a jury selected the most promising ideas that entered the second phase. In this phase, a bootcamp program took place that helps the idea-owners to develop their business concepts. The last phase consisted of the Demoday where the teams presented their solutions to the jury.

Impact

The Final Footprint Challenge contributes to Sustainable Development Goals 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities and SDG 13: Climate Action
