Think you have a unique solution to a global problem?

Share your winning idea in the World's Challenge Challenge

Western University is inviting some of the world's best universities to compete in the international World's Challenge Challenge in 2017-18.

Students from participating partner universities will form diverse teams of three to bring ideas forward to address a global issue. Teams then present their unique solution to a panel of academic and community leaders at their own institution. The top team from each World's Challenge Challenge partner will win a trip to London, Canada, to compete in the international finals from June 3 to 8, 2018.

Finalists will have an opportunity to network with some of the best and brightest students from around the world, participate in academic events, generate further discussion around global issues, and experience a taste of Canadian hospitality.

Western University greatly appreciates the support of our generous donors to the 2017 International World's Challenge Challenge:
