Global challenges — NICE
Donate Account. A Great Idea Can Change Everythin g An Innovation Challenge inspires people from around the world to focus their talent and creativity to compete for a prize purse while unlocking new ideas and innovations that can address a global issue that needs to be solved. For many problems facing our world, we need a variety of solvers — these problems affect all of us.
Unlike your typical, solutions-driven business pitch competition, the Global Challenge focuses on deeply understanding the context of a social problem.
Participants analyze and demonstrate their understanding of the ethos of a social issue, map the landscape, and present their findings. Students have the opportunity to move forward to a national and international level.
If you have any questions about the competition or if you are looking for support with your submission, please contact Jessica Machado by email at jmachado ryerson. All Ryerson University students enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate, or continuing education program either part-time or full-time are eligible.
Students can participate as individuals or in teams of up to five. Each team must have at least one current Ryerson University student; teams can include individuals who are students or alumni of other colleges or universities.
