RISE (Real Impact on Society and Environment) is an international showcase of student achievement in sustainability and social innovation. RISE is designed to accelerate the scale and impact of student-led projects by connecting them with a network of experts in academia and industry.
Alongside access to a global network of supporter, teams will have the chance of winning prizes of $2000 each to further develop their project.
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!

What Sort of Projects Can Be Entered?
Your project must directly address at least one of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. These aren’t just about environmental action, they cover almost every aspect of environmental and societal development. In practice most non-profit and social innovation projects will already be addressing at least one goal, even if you didn’t realise it!
The project should be at the development stage, not just an idea. There needs to have been some positive actions taken to turn an idea into reality. However, that doesn’t mean it has to be a fully-fledged enterprise or small business.
