Event description

Description

You’re Invited!

Join us in Toronto for the 2019 Map the System Canadian Final!

Map the System is a global competition that asks us to think differently about social and environmental change. It requires students to showcase their understanding of system-level social and environmental challenges. Unlike a traditional pitch competition, students in the Map the System are evaluated based not on a ‘solution’ to a problem, but rather on the depth of understanding of the problem.

On Saturday, May 4th we invite you to join us in Toronto for the Canadian Final. You’ll get to hear from the top teams from across the country selected as finalists, as they present their research to a panel of judges and compete to win prizes. The top two teams will move onto the international competition at the University of Oxford in June. Attendance is free and open to all, but advance registration is required. Please note, this event will be filmed.

When: Saturday, May 4th, 2019 from 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Where: Ryerson University Student Learning Centre (SLC)

Location: The Student Learning Centre (SLC) is located at 341 Yonge Street, at the corner at Yonge & Gould Streets in Toronto, Canada.
