What Is Map the System?

Map the System is a global competition hosted by the University of Oxford, which challenges students to analyze issues of social or environmental change. In the competition, individuals or groups of up to five people will research a social or environmental topic that is important to them, and present their findings to the world.

There will be a U of T Final on April 10, 2019, where teams will present their research to the public and a local winner will advance to the Canadian Final on May 3 – 4, 2019.

Two winners of the Canadian Final will receive a ,500 CASH PRIZE per team and a FREE TRIP to the Map the System Global Final on June 7 – 9, 2019 at the University of Oxford, UK.
