Student Competition

What does “Digital Creativity” mean to you?

Do you think you could address the issues of Clean Water and Sanitation, Good Health and Wellbeing or Sustainable cities and Communities?

Do you and three team members want a trip to Germany with flights and hotel paid for to present your winning idea?

We are welcoming all undergraduate and postgraduate students of our member universities to enter WTUN’s first student competition.

All you have to do is use Digital Creativity in some way to try and address one of the WTUN’s chosen United Nations Sustainable Development Goals:

  1. Clean Water and Sanitation
  2. Good Health and Wellbeing
  3. Sustainable Cities and Communities

We are seeking new and innovative solutions to address the three topics above, and we invite project proposals from, preferably, multi-disciplinary teams.

Here, we invite you to submit your ideas in the form of a proposal that will be assessed by our judges, and the winning team will be selected to present their idea at the next meeting of the WTUN in Germany in October 2020.

The WTUN membership will then decide on whether further funding can be made available to deliver the project itself.

The project proposal must include an element of Public Engagement.

Maximum team size is four.

Please note that the trip to Germany is 13 – 15 October 2020 so students should be available to travel during this time.

Students are encouraged to focus not only on technical aspects, but also on the social, economic and regional challenges of addressing the Sustainable Development Goals.

What do you have to do?

  1. Get together a team of four students (undergraduate or postgraduate).
  2. Register your team by sending an email to wtun@bradford.ac.uk with the names of your team members, your courses and your institution by Friday 13th December 2019.
  3. Submit your proposal using the form below by Friday 17th January 2020.

Submission Format

Students are encouraged to ensure that their proposal confirms:

  • which goal is being addressed (and how)
  • how the project idea will engage the public
  • what the predicted societal impact is
  • the overall cost of delivering the project
  • an indicative timeline for delivery of the project

Each proposal can also be accompanied by a demo or media showcasing the proposal.

The format for submissions is flexible, with the only requirement being that the proposal must be able to be uploaded electronically. Applications will be accepted via Microsoft Forms. We encourage students to be innovative in how they present their idea!

Submit your final proposals

If you have additional documents, demos or media to go alongside your proposal, please email this to wtun@bradford.ac.uk using the team number you were giving at initial registration.

Good luck!
