Students can 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.
WWF calls for all eyes on accelerating change that will protect and restore our planet at the annual Designing Change for a Living Planet competition. Each year, we invite students from colleges and universities to apply to join us at our Toronto office for a day to design and pitch ideas to launch the next big shift in our daily lives.
How it works
*In light of the rapidly evolving coronavirus outbreak, WWF’s Designing Change for a Living Planet 2020 event has been postponed until further notice. The health and safety of our students, partners, and staff are our top priorities.*
From January 14 – February 17, students from all academic disciplines were invited to apply to join professionals from different industries at the WWF Toronto office on Saturday March 14 (postponed until further notice) to create and share their ideas on how to build a sustainable future.
Drawing inspiration from the everyday and each student’s unique academic background, participants will have the opportunity to:
- Represent their campus
- Create and innovate at WWF with their student team of four
- 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 (to be announced) and a one-on-one mentoring opportunity with an industry professional in a sector area of their choice
The application period for this year’s event has closed.
Students who are selected to represent their campus will be notified at the end of February. Please stay tuned to hear more about this year’s event and how you can get involved in Designing Change for a Living Planet next year.
