As part of our Reimagining 2025: Living with Fire program, Wonder Labs is pleased to announce a Design Challenge.
The aim of the Design Challenge is to center the voices of emerging scholars in current discussions on wildfire risk reduction.
The objective is to enable student-led teams to closely engage with communities in processes of reimagining inclusive, just, and sustainable pathways to living with fire.
We expect proposals to be co-developed with communities at high risk of wildfire impacts in the western United States, specifically with communities in California, Colorado, Idaho, and Oregon. Please see detailed guidance on forming a team, proposal requirements, submission guidelines, funding and resourceshere.
Submit your proposal by 7 May 2021 (REVISED deadline)! Wonder Labs will announce three winning teams by 14 May 2021. Teams will have until 21 May 2021 to accept. Selected teams will have 6 months, from 1 June 2021 until 30 November 2021, to complete the Design Challenge.
Interested? Here’s what to do next:
Assemble a team of at least 3 students, 1 faculty advisor, and 1 community partner.
Nominate a student team lead who will be responsible for managing the team’s participation in the Design Challenge and communicating with Wonder Labs.
Collaboratively draft a proposal following the submission guidelines.
