An extension of the student-run A Better World by Design conference, the Better World Challenge aims to inspire young innovators from multidisciplinary backgrounds to solve a social problem. This year, the competition is asking students around the world to re-imagine the coastal community of Matunuck, whose culture and livelihood are increasingly threatened by coastal erosion and other natural disasters linked to climate change.

Submit your design by September 1, 2011 to abetterworldbydesign@gmail.com for a shot at winning. Finalists will present their designs at the A Better World by Design ’11 conference, which takes place the weekend of September 30 – October 2 in Providence, Rhode Island. The winner will receive $1000 and have the amazing opportunity to work with Save the Bay to implement their project.
