International Rainforest Challenge

Design for Change presents The Rainforest Kids Challenge, also supported by XPRIZE RAINFOREST. The challenge tasks students to apply the FIDS framework and use their creativity and problem solving skills to come up with ways and means to protect and preserve the rainforest around the world. Students have an opportunity to actively take part in the climate discourse and engage with the diverse problems they can observe and act on to save our planet. Four projects will have an opportunity to win $2,000 each!
