Hello there, vibrant C:F community!
We know you are curious to find out who are the C:F Heroes who started Facing 21st Century Disasters, together with our partner Zavarovalnica Triglav. You were asked to share your vision on what kind of disasters we might face in the next decades and how to protect, respond or adapt to future circumstances.
It turned out judges had difficult times and hard decisions to make, as 124 ideas, coming from 46 countries had to be evaluated. But here we are now, ready to make a big announcement and put smiles on your faces.
Here are the 20 ideas that made it to the Finals of Facing 21st Century Disasters Challenge! Each of finalists receives 300 Sparks.

And now, get ready to hear the first three winners of 2500 scholarships for attending C:F Academy and Summit 2012. Time to meet TOP three who fascinated the expert judges. Lets give a round of applause to the challenge winners, who get 1000 Sparks each, and a chance to not only come and be part of C:F Academy & Summit, but also the opportunity to present their ideas in front of all C:F Academy attendees. Clap, clap, clap.....
Big congratulations from the entire C:F Team and C:F Community!
