Leiden University challenges students to create global impact

Leiden University Deans’ Challenge

In a rapidly interconnected world, the challenges faced by anyone become the challenges faced by each of us. How can the collective brains of Leiden University contribute to making a better world? The deans of Leiden University challenge you to come up with fresh and novel ideas that contribute to the attainment of the Post 2015 Sustainable Development Goals. Choose your challenge, join a team during the workshops and device a solution. Each dean will choose one winner who will get the opportunity to present their idea to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The grand prize will be a trip to New York to attend a side-event of the United Nations Summit on the post-2015 development agenda. 

Anyone who's passionate about contributing to global challenges is welcome to join the Leiden University Deans' Challenge. Do you have a creative mind, an entrepreneurial spirit, and a vision to solve the most pressing issues of our time? Don't hesitate and join the competition before June 12th.
