Ryerson University, in partnership with RECODE at the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation, the Trico Charitable Foundation and The Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship, presents the Global Challenge at Ryerson University! The Global Challenge seeks to change the conversation in social impact education and innovation. With 24 participating universities spanning 5 continents, the challenge is a chance for undergraduate, graduate students and recent alumni to demonstrate their understanding of social or environmental issues they care about.
Tackling the world’s most pressing problems is no easy task, but understanding the broader context and complexity of an issue can better inform business ventures and long-term solutions, while encouraging mass participation. You will work individually or in teams (of up to three), diving into the ethos of a problem to map the landscape, identify current solutions and missed opportunities. Ultimately you will present your findings locally to Ryerson, with the hope of moving on to additional stages at a national and international level.
This partnership is made possible by the leadership and support of the Ryerson community (Office of Social Innovation, School of Graduate Studeis, University Relations and Ryerson International).
