“Make the Ala Wai Awesome” Student Design Challenge
March 17, 2017
UPDATE: The deadline for design entries is coming up – March 17th, 2017!
The “Make the Ala Wai Awesome” Student Design Challenge, was announced by the University of Hawai‘i at the U.S.-hosted 2016 IUCN World Conservation Congress. The Challenge looks to unlock student innovation and creativity to craft solutions that address critical urban watershed and island issues, specifically, restoring watershed ecologies and exploring culture’s contribution to sustainable development.
The University of Hawaiʻi seek ideas from the brightest minds of our youth and students to help advance the collective goals and action agenda of the Ala Wai Watershed Partnership (AWWP) (e.g., stream and ecosystem restoration, green stormwater infrastructure, water capture and reuse, sediment control, flood mitigation, contemporary urban ahupua’a, Ala Wai as a destination, education and engagement with community/youth, coalition of teams with local participation, etc.).
