Map The System Competition

The global student competition hosted by Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship at the University of Oxford – Map the System (MTS) – is open for registration. The competition challenges participants to use systems thinking as a guiding approach to understanding some of the most complex issues the world faces today.

This competition gives you an opportunity to dive deeply into an issue that matters to you and take the time to research all its connecting elements and factors — later sharing your findings in a way that people can meaningfully understand, share, and learn from. Innovate Carolina has been hosting an internal UNC competition and supporting a team to the global finals for the past four years. You can check out some of the awesome projects here.

No experience in systems thinking is necessary! Learn this methodology from the University of Oxford along the way.

Teams must be registered by Jan 31. However, topics and teammates are not required to get started. The winning team from UNC will be awarded a cash prize and compete for a trip to Oxford University this summer for the Global Finals.

You can learn more at the Map the System Info and Work session on Jan 25th at 3pm. Free pizza at the session!
