RISE (Real Impact on Society and Environment) is U21’s international showcase of student achievement in sustainability and social innovation. The initiative is designed to accelerate the scale and impact of student-led projects by connecting them with a network of experts in academia and industry.
Each U21 member institution is invited to nominate up to 4 student-led projects based on an aspect of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Alongside access to a global network of supporters, teams will have the chance of winning one of four prizes valued at over $2000 each.
As well as the opportunity to win seed funding, student pledges are also afforded the opportunity to receive pledges of support from the wider U21 network.
The showcase will exhibit all student projects in the RISE 20/21 final that are seeking support from across the U21 network. Click here for further information.
