We are currently at our maximum capacity for ReThink Food. If you would like to be added to our wait list please contact Shea O'Neil at email@example.com
ReThink Food is a one-day innovation challenge for high school students across Metro Vancouver. Sign up as a team or as an individual (you will be placed in a team) to design a solution to our sustainability challenge question, and compete for seed funding to implement your project. Come together on November 5th, 2015 to generate innovative projects that can have real impact in your school!
How do we approach food more sustainably in our schools?
Build real-world projects that address one or more of the following three categories:
Reconnect us to the source of our food
Cultivate healthy eating and healthy communities
Reduce food waste and improve waste diversion
Your projects could address unexplored areas of opportunity or build on existing initiatives at your school. Tackle the challenge through a variety of lenses, including technology, education, communications, community building, infrastructure change, or a combination of the above and more.
Throughout the day, you will have the chance to connect with your peers and mentors and to build your skills through workshops on ideation, project planning, budgeting, and pitching. Snacks and lunch will be provided.
Bring your creativity and passion for local food, zero waste, and healthy schools. The possibilities are endless!
