Map The Sytem - Image pitching at final

Map the System asks you to demonstrate a deep understanding of a pressing social or environmental issue by mapping out the landscape of current solutions and identifying missing opportunities for change.

Why enter?

You’ll have the opportunity to make connections with socially-conscious students, researchers and practitioners from within your school and the wider community. You can compete with other teams from across your institution. You could also be selected to attend the Global Final at the University of Oxford, UK, and compete with teams from across the globe to win cash prizes. But more importantly, you’ll get the chance to research a real-world problem, learn about organisations working the field, and contribute towards making a real difference in your chosen area.

Who is the competition for?

This competition is ideally suited if any of the following apply:
% You have a passion for, or experience of, a pressing social or environmental challenge and you would like to investigate this problem fully
% You are preparing for a career with a social impact and want to understand where your skills could be applied to deliver lasting impact % You are interested in an internship and want to find out more about the organisations working in your chosen area and potential opportunities
% You have an existing solution, product or business idea, but you would like to research the issue thoroughly to understand what has been tried and tested, and you are willing to pivot your idea based on your findings Map the System is less well suited if your business idea or start-up enterprise is at an advanced stage of development and pivoting your model is no longer feasible.

Eligibility criteria

% You can apply for Map the System as an individual or in a team of up to five people.
% At least one member of the team must be a current student at a partner institution (enrolled on a course of 6 months or longer), OR a recent graduate of a partner institution (having completed studies within 12 months of the date you register for the competition).
% Students may be at undergraduate, diploma, postgraduate or doctoral level. Your institution may have additional eligibility criteria. Please get in touch with your local Map the System contact for further information.
