2025 Student Sustainability Action Challenge Coming Soon

Congratulations 2024 Student Challenge Winners!

This is a challenge event for students as an introduction to the process of tri-sector innovation thinking as a means to develop solutions to complex problems including: empathizing, defining, ideating, prototyping, and iterating. We challenge you to generate ideas and find creative solutions built for people who will actually use them. Outcomes of this process might come in the form of programs, actions, processes, or artifacts - physical or digital. This experience provides students with a valuable skill set to use in the future along with a creative, productive way to tackle complex sustainability focused issues. Higher education institutions are invited and encouraged to recruit one or more student teams of 3-4 students to participate in this challenge!

The Workshop component offers a combination of guest expert speakers, collaborative group ideating and project development and mentorship from local industry leaders. The Pitch-Fest component will consist of time for the top teams to pitch their Sustainability Action Idea, judging and awards.
