  • May 1 Online Brock Youth Design Challenge

    What's this all about?

    ReWild of the Ontario Water Centre, in partnership with the Brock Youth
    Centre, will be leading an Online Design Challenge that is aimed at inspiring
    youth to question, explore and express their voice and ideas on the future of
    your lives and your community. We are calling all youth aged 13 to 19 to
    submit a design of an object or product that represents your feelings about the
    future, their uniqueness in this changing world, and that also has some kind of
    function for water.

    These designs will be carefully evaluated by a range of local people, and the 5
    designs rated the highest will be announced at an event in June showcasing
    initial phase of the Harbour of the Future, an initiative being led by ReWild
    in partnership with Brock Township. At this event, the community will vote
    on their favourite design, of which will be prototyped for testing at the
    Harbour space.

    You don’t need any special skills or experience, just an imagination and the
    drive to make an impact on your community. The time you spend on this
    Challenge can be counted toward community service hours.

    Who can participate?

    Youth living in Brock Township ages 13 to 19.

    You can submit a design on your own, or with friends, but we’d like to limit
    groups to 3 people or less. Also, it’s great thing to ask for inspiration and
    support, but make sure your design is original as it can be!

      why you think it deserves to be the winning design to showcase at the
