Students design our future
What’s the Next Big Shift? From bike share programs to online paperless banking, almost overnight, innovations are changing how we shop, commute, learn, access entertainment, and connect with others. These big shifts have had local, regional, even global reach.
Last year, students from 12 different colleges and universities came together at WWF-Canada to design and pitch their ideas to launch the next big shift in our daily lives. In 2019, WWF is calling for all eyes on accelerating change that will protect and restore our planet at the annual Designing Change for a Living Planet competition.
How it works
Students from all academic disciplines will be invited to join professionals from different industries in winter 2019 to create and share their ideas on how to build a sustainable future.
Last year, students came together to collaborate from a diverse range of programs, including: social services, mental health and addictions, architecture, engineering, culinary services, arts, global studies, law, business, mathematical physics, web design, supply chain, and more.
Drawing inspiration from the everyday and their unique academic backgrounds, each student was given the opportunity to:
- Represent their campus
- Create and innovate at WWF with their student team
- Connect with other post-secondary students and staff
- Develop new contacts with professionals from different industries
- Present concepts to WWF staff and a panel of expert judges
- Compete for a prize
