RMIT and the City of Melbourne want to know; how would you design out waste?

Australia is one of the most wasteful countries in the developed world, with the waste we generate growing at twice the rate of our population.

Take on this real-world brief and develop your leadership, team work, and problem solving skills, with the City Challenge: Melbourne from 4 - 5 September. 

By taking part in the City Challenge: Melbourne, you'll gain the RMIT Cred "Innovation for Global Cities" which will appear on your RMIT Transcript and can be added to your LinkedIn profile.

What is it?

  • 1 brief set by the City of Melbourne: How would you design out waste?
  • 2 days working in teams to create a solution
  • Masterclasses, workshops, keynote speeches, industry immersion visits, an ideas marketplace and an industry pitch
  • The opportunity to make your concept a reality through collaboration with RMIT Activator
