Student Competition 2024: The Winners!

For 2024, undergraduate and postgraduate students from WTUN member institutions were invited to form a multidisciplinary team of up to four members and submit their team idea and/or project to the WTUN Student Competition.

The theme was “Inclusive Technology and Global Citizenship for the 21st Century” and students were given the following challenge:

Can you form an interdisciplinary team to come together to address one of the following United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals?

#3 Good Health and Wellbeing

#4 Quality Education

#11 Sustainable Cities and Consumption

#12 Responsible Consumption and Production

#13 Climate Action

We welcome all undergraduate and postgraduate students of our member universities to enter WTUN’s annual student competition.

All you have to do is produce and present an idea (via a video) to address one of the chosen United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

We are seeking new and innovative solutions to address the goals, and we invite project proposals from student teams (undergraduate, postgraduate or a combination and preferably multi-disciplinary).

The assessment panel was thoroughly impressed by the student proposals and videos and the final results were very close.
