WISE-Ottawa Weekend Challenge – Volunteer

Outline: WISE-Ottawa Weekend Challenge

The WISE-Ottawa Weekend Challenge is designed to inspire high school students with a shared desire for a better world to work with peers from diverse backgrounds in addressing a locally relevant social issue. In this case, students are asked to use a cooperative, interdisciplinary approach to improve Food Security through human-centred innovation with the support of schools, mentors, experts and community resources.

Challenge participants will be asked to consider their own place in Ottawa’s food security ecosystem. How does our relationship with food impact me, my community, and our environment? How can we use our diverse knowledge, experience, and expertise to better understand the problems that we face? How would we design an integrated solution to provide security and nourishment for everyone in this ecosystem?

My role

As a volunteer, I help on the organization of the challenge weekend, which would take place in the next fall.
