About the challenge


This challenge will involve issues currently being faced in Victoria and in municipalities worldwide. Judging panels will be made up of affiliated staff, design thinking experts, and other stakeholders.

The goal of the Royal Roads Design Challenge is to be forward-looking, and asks students to work with community leaders to address a challenge of societal concern. This is unlike standard business cases, which represent the past challenges of organizations.

Format of the Challenge

There will be two rounds to this challenge:

  • In the first round, which you will begin online, you will explore the challenge in your own city, and present solutions that would work in your context.
  • The second round’s challenge, which will build on the first, will be presented to you when you are in Victoria, BC.

More details will be released in the upcoming months.
