The UWill Discover Sustainable Futures call for proposals is now open. You can submit your proposal on the UWill Discover website’s proposal submission page. University of Windsor undergraduate and graduate students in any discipline can apply to present their research, research reflections, and student initiatives March 19 to 24, 2024.
“UWill Discover is a one-of-a-kind learning experience where students share their work with the UWindsor community and consider how it connects with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals,” says UWill Discover ambassador Grace Taylor.
Students may submit proposals for posters, articles, business pitches, prototypes, musical or drama performances, compositions, art installations, movie trailers, and educational tools, among others. Organizers have prepared templates and short tutorials to help students develop a variety of proposals related or not to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
UWill Discover is a year-long project including pre-conference workshops, opportunities for mentorship, a writing retreat for participants, and the chance to compete for a spot in the new journal. This year’s conference theme is “sustainable futures” in recognition of the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
“The UWill Discover conference aims to have a heaping helping of interactive events, conference prizes, and networking opportunities,” says project lead Tim Brunet, co-ordinator of student leadership in the Student Succes and Leadership Centre.
Select research reflections and work by the presenters will be added to the second edition of the UWill Discover journal to be published in fall 2024.
UWill Discover is supported by offices across campus. Find details on submitting to the conference on the UWill Discover Sustainable Futures website.
