      Program Overview

      Map the System is a global research competition organized by Oxford University that equips students to use systems thinking to tackle complex social or environmental challenges.

      Tackling global challenges starts with understanding a problem and its wider context. Map the System asks students to select a social or environmental issue and to explore, probe, and research all the connecting elements and factors around it. Students should be able to present this issue in such a way that the audience can understand, learn and share.

      The University of Waterloo leg of this competition runs annually over the Winter semester and is open to teams of undergraduate and graduate students in any discipline
