From Challenge to Implementation

The Generation Green project was initially set up for Helsinki Challenge science competition and idea accelerator program at the end of 2014. The original idea of the team was to reform the pharmacy curricula to comprehensively implement green pharmacy practice to higher education in pharmacy. During the idea accelerator program the team had a chance to cultivate the implementation plan together with a number of national and international experts from the pharmaceutical and environmental sectors.
