Feeding 9 Billion Challenge LFS|US & Engineers without Borders – deadline Nov 3

By 2050, the world will have to feed 9 billion people – and the ways to achieve this begin with you!
The Feeding 9 Billion Challenge, hosted by LFS|US and Engineers Without Borders, is back! This is a fantastic event to collaborate with students from all disciplines at UBC, as you work in teams to create sustainable solutions to food security issues. Participants have 18 hours to brainstorm and plan their proposals before presenting their projects to the judges’ panel. During that time, your team will be mentored by UBC professors to help develop your ideas.

The winning teams will receive cash prizes to bring their proposals to life!
First Place: $750
Second Place: $500
Third Place: $250

The Feeding 9 Billion Challenge is running from 12:00 PM November 11th to 12:00 PM November 12th, at the Engineering Student Centre. Tier 1 tickets are only $5.00 – which includes 3 awesome meals and plenty of snacks and coffee!
