City Challenge

Tackle a major challenge set by city leaders while working in groups to create innovative solutions.

In the City Challenge, you and 200 of your peers will explore a real-world problem facing our cities today. You will visit industry and hear from experts who'll help you understand the problem at a deeper level.

Working in diverse groups, you will come up with a creative solution to help combat this global issue.

You’ll experience the innovation process first hand and will develop and test your collaboration and presentation skills, enhance your ability to thrive in complex situations and most importantly make friends! 

You’ll also gain recognition for your new skills through RMIT Creds. Once you’ve completed the program, you’ll have the opportunity to earn the digital badge Innovation for Global Cities, which you can display on your CV and online profiles.
