RISE (Real Impact on Society and Environment) is an international showcase of student achievement sustainability and social innovation, designed to accelerate the scale and impact of student-led projects by connecting them with a network of experts.
Each U21 member institution (e.g. the University of Amsterdam) is invited to nominate a student-led project based on an aspect of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Alongside access to a global network of supporters, teams will have the chance of winning one of three prizes valued at over €2,000 each. If you have a voluntary, social enterprise or environmental project that you would like to scale up, develop, and build, then RISE is for you.
Corona update: This opportunity is not affected by the developing situation.
