Do you have a solution to a major global problem?

The World’s Challenge Challenge at the University of Waterloo is a competition where teams of three diverse students pick one of the United Nations’ Sustainability Development Goals, and propose a solution. Teams will be selected for interviews on February 14, based on a written application, and six teams will be selected to make a 5-7 minute presentation on March 2, proposing a solution to a panel of judges, with Q&A.
