The New Challenge presents THE COCOON where students can participate in peer exchange around social challenges and innovative solutions. Students with an idea/solution addressing a social issue, current social ventures or New Challenge competition projects, or skills to contribute to any of these, are encouraged to attend.
This intensive session will include two periods: a 20-minute period for Speed Networking where students can collaborate around interests and skill areas and a 60-minute period for PEER-TO-PEER CONSULTING to workshop student ideas and receive peer guidance and advice. Information about New Challenge 2014 and related fall course offerings will be discussed during the event.
