We’re excited to host our first-ever Global Build Championship, inviting students around the world to design healthy spaces for animals and humans to thrive together. Learners aged 8–18 form teams of 1–3 to submit designs where humans can exist in harmony with the natural world. Submissions are due November 6! We also hosted a live workshop to help educators guide their students through the Championship, and you can watch the on-demand recording here.
