UWaterloo team takes top prize at MEDAx
At the beginning of November, Conrad Grebel and the University of Waterloo sent two teams, Climatory and Emergency Response Africa (ERA), to the annual MEDAx pitching compeition in Tuscon, AZ. Both teams pitched extremely well, with ERA winning the $10K investment!
ERA's journey to success at MEDAx has been filled with multiple pitch competitions and connections with incubators across Waterloo and internationally. Their story is a testament to upcoming ventures, like Climatory, that the key to success is accessing the right resources at the right time.
Encourage critical doing, not just critical thinking
Conrad Grebel students have continued to make a name for themselves across campus, and beyond, as innovative changemakers with an eye for the social good. This trend, captured by Director Paul Heidebrecht in the Fall 2019 edition of Grebel Now, is a part of a larger call for students across Canada to not only be critical thinkers, but also critical doers.
Paul's feature article explores exactly why Grebel students are uniquely poised to carry out critical doing in their university careers, and beyond.
A matter of life and death: KW Drone Dialogues
"The Cultural Life of Drones: KW Drone Dialogues" drew in nearly 70 guests for the official exhibit launch and reception earlier this month. As guests mingled amidst the drone-covered walls, artist Sara Matthews challenged attendees to consider their own preconceived notions about drones to consider how drones have penetrated society, for better or for worse.
Didn't get a chance to join us at the launch? "The Cultural Life of Drones: KW Drone Dialogues" will run until April 24, 2020. Contact us to schedule a tour during Gallery hours. Admission is free.
Men's Circle - HeForShe IMPACT 10x10x10 Through interactive exercises and discussions, the Men's Circle will explore some of the ways in which men can become leaders in creating a safer campus for everyone. This workshop will also explore the relations of power involved in sexual violence and sketch men's roles in fostering gender equity on campus.
Map the System Map the System is a global competition that challenges you to think differently about environmental and social change. We are co-hosting the University of Waterloo's campus finals, with the winning team moving on to pitch at the Canadian finals in Montreal, and if successful, at the global finals in Oxford, UK.
Aligned values and shared commitment to incubate and advance collaborative, inter-disciplinary, multi-sector peacemaking is at the heart of our partnership with the Kindred Credit Union, and continues to inspire our work.
