Supporting Passionate Students in Developing Creative Solutions to Real-World Challenges

In March, Toronto Metropolitan University Leadership hosted their annual Student Leadership Conference, “Inspire to Action”, focused on empowering students to become influential leaders on campus and in their communities. As part of the conference, student teams participated in a case competition, where they had an opportunity to take on leadership roles and collaborate with peers in devising creative ideas and solutions to real-world challenges. 

In our role as a mentor for the case competition, we shared our insights and experience related to pressing issues facing our waters, helping students consider the potential impacts of their projects on the Great Lakes environment, including as they relate to pollution, climate change, biodiversity and more. We also discussed how their proposals could contribute to healthy and resilient lakes by fostering community engagement and collaborative initiatives.
