Two Edinburgh students have won an international social enterprise competition to find innovative solutions to global issues.
They were part of the winning team of Social Storm, a unique 24-hour contest that involved more than 250 students from 22 universities.
Students from around the world joined forces to develop ideas for products and services to help improve global food security and sustainable housing.
Competitors at Edinburgh took part alongside students from universities in the UK, Argentina, India, Ghana, Belgium, Spain, Italy and Finland.
Pierre-Andre Belle, a first year Mechanical Engineer, and Euan Briggs, a second year History and Politics student, were part of the winning team.
They worked with students from the Universities of Aston and East Anglia to come up with the idea of using hemp grown in Kenya as a viable building material to replace concrete.
The Careers Service and LAUNCH.ed took part in Social Storm for the first time this year in response to student demand for more opportunities to develop hands-on social enterprise and employability skills.
