How will things be transported 30 years from now?
The answer may lie in the inventions from the students participating in the Future Transport project, which Greencarrier is a partner to for the third consecutive year.
The Future Transport project is initiated by Universeum, the largest Science Center in the Nordic Countries, and carried out each year in collaboration with a number of partners from business and academy. In the project students in grade 7 and 8 compete against each other and develop ideas for how to move and transport goods in a more sustainable way in the future.
To be more exact, create a transport solution for the year 2049!
“We are so happy to be part of this project once again! It’s an excellent platform to raise an interest for the subject of future sustainable transports and it enables us to reach out and collaborate with students as well as other partners about the very interesting subject of future, sustainable transport solutions. It is such a fun project to be part of”. Says Åsa Leander, Head of Sustainability and Brand Management at Greencarrier.
“We hope that we can create an interest for the transport and logistics sector among young people, it’s such a great industry and we need the creativity and talent of these young people in the future! We hope that some of them will find great new innovations for sustainable future transport solutions, and then come to join the industry in the future”.
The Future Day
The finale of the Future Transport project is an event called The Future Day, held on 4th of December 2019. This is an exhibition day where all students show their ideas and the best innovations will be appointed.
Greencarrier will be part of the jury that selects the winner, and we will also award a competing class with Greencarrier’s own honorary price. We will have our own exhibition stand in the partner exhibition and participate as experts in several panel discussions.

Collaboration for a sustainable future
The overall purpose of the project is to create a forum for dialogue and to engage, inspire and make students interested in environment and sustainable technology as well as showing different types of job functions in the transport industry.
This goes well in line with our ambitions within the Greencarrier Spirit, which is about how we take responsibility for the society and the world around us.
