  • How to keep your food cool when hiking in hot weather?
  • How to regulate your temperature in hot weather?
  • How to avoid getting lost?
  • How to combine “comfort” and “hygiene” when hiking?
  • How to encourage children to go hiking?

When submitting the project (from May 1 to July 7, 2023), you will have to answer the following questions:

  • What problem does my project address?
  • In concrete terms, how does that work ?
  • How is this low-tech?
  • How is this unique, original, new?
  • What difficulties did you encounter during the development of the project?
  • What are your next steps?
  • We strongly recommend that you attach photos or videos (sketches, prototypes, experiments, use test, tutorial, environmental impact estimate, for example). It is also possible to attach a PDF document, provided that it is concise and completes the questions you have already answered.
