We seem to have so many things in place to improve the life conditions of more and more people, especially those in poverty: design students are becoming increasingly interested in Social Design, design educators themselves are finally realising that their students want more socially- and environmentally-oriented projects, and design competitions are finally incorporating a sustainability element into their criteria and categories.

The University of B.C. is searching for innovative thinkers to help reduce or even eliminate Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHG) on its campus as part of its ongoing Climate Action Plan. 
The competition is rewarding prizes up to $5,000 to the winner with the best plan and know-how to develop a sustainable energy source that will provide the school with electricity, heat, gas, sanitary and storm water utilities.
