PlagScan Supports Environment and Sustainability Efforts

PlagScan stands for quality assurance in education and the support of creative and independent thinking. Although we can’t emphasize the importance of education, we also value something else at least as much: The environment and sustainability. For this reason, we have been supporting the BundesUmweltWettbewerb (Federal Environment Competition) of the Leibnitz Institute for Science and Mathematics Education at the University of Kiel (IPN) for several years. The competition combines knowledge transfer to promote sustainable actions, education and environmental protection.

Motivation and Inspiration of Young Minds

The BundesUmweltWettbewerb invites young adults between the ages of 10 and 20 to present their ideas on the subject of environment and sustainability in ecology, business, society, technology and culture. Problem-solving approaches are sought in all possible areas of life. The winners of the competition can be awarded up to 1,500 euros.

We believe that sustainability and environmental protection relate tremendously to education – as people who have been taught about the subject can act in a sustainable and environmentally responsible manner. We support the initiative and the great new ideas of the young generation.

Aside from PlagScan PlagScan, other organizations such as Coca-Cola, Deutsche Bahn and Deutsche Umwelthilfe (German Environmental Aid) support the BundesUmweltWettbewerb, which is also sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.


If you live in Germany and are between 10 to 20 years old or have children at that age, you can participate or encourage your children to take part in this great initiative. Apply until March 15, 2018, and become a potential part of an innovative and sustainable future.
