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’ Sustainable Development Goals (also known as Global Goals), and propose a solution. Teams will be selected for interviews occurring on February 14, and six teams will be selected to make a 5-7 minute presentation on March 1, proposing a solution to a panel of judges, with Q&A.
