Change begins on a small scale, even with the bigger picture in mind. This sentence sums up the initiative Fixing The Future. In 2022, the focus is on climate innovation.

The European Summer of 2021 once again demonstrated that we need to find answers to the biggest crisis of our time: climate collapse. The focus of our casting for new ideas is therefore on climate innovation.
Fixing The Future
Do you think innovatively? With the support of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), we invite you to submit your original idea to Fixing the Future 2022. We want to make your solutions visible. What is the problem from your point of view? What are you doing that’s new?
We welcome short video clips that explain your project, concept or academic work on climate innovation - for example on water, soil, air, food, economy, education, social affairs, technology, mobility, energy, health, culture. There are no limits to your innovative approaches.
We report selected submissions on the radio.
Third season: October 2022.
A jury will give awards to winning projects.
The participation deadline for awards was Monday, 20 June 2022.
