Instructors invited to attend a Map the System information session Monday, June 19

May 19, 2023 — 
Map the System is a global competition out of the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship at the University of Oxford. Map the System requires participants to use a systems-thinking approach to demonstrate deep understanding of a pressing social or environmental challenge. In doing so, students ultimately uncover levers for change. Last year 16 Canadian post-secondary institutions participated in this global challenge. In 2024, Map the System is coming to the University of Manitoba!
