GEMS Global Design Challenge

March 30, 2018


The GEMS Global Design Challenge is a 2-day event during which students in grades 5 through 10 will engage in research and development around a solution related to one of the following United Nations Sustainable Development Goals: No Poverty, Lifeon Land, Life Below WaterGender Equality, and Clean Water and Sanitation. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals were defined by 193 members of United Nations as a path to solve some of the world’s most pressing challenges by year 2030. This event will offer students an opportunity to grow as leaders and create meaningful action.

With the support of Global Goals content mentors from the United Nations Association of Chicago and local experts as project mentors, students will work in teams to research their goals, design a solution to one of the goal targets and pitch their solutions to judges. Solution possibilities can range from designing an action campaign plan, developing an app, designing a product or creating a public-art installation.
