The SDG Challenge is on again!

Published: 5th August 2022

WA's four public universities have joined together to bring our domestic and international students a unique opportunity - the SDG Challenge!

SDG Challenge 630x380

What's the SDG Challenge all about?

The SDG Challenge stands for Students Doing Good! It also stands for Sustainable Development Goals.

In the SDG Challenge participants will select an SDG that is interesting to them and join a team of students from across WA's four universities. They’ll  participate in short workshops to learn about design thinking and user experience design. They’ll then join their team in applying new skills to pitch their ideas to industry and academic leaders.

The Challenge will help participants develop project management skills for real-world problems. 

The SDG Challenge is free and 100% online.
