Welcome to issue No. 35 of  The Collaborative Field Notes .

Hello Collaborative Members!
While Heidi is on vacation, I thought an update on the Collaborative Student Challenge might fit nicely into this space!
The Collaborative Challenge was launched as an outcome of the 2017 Summit held in Bangkok.  At the Summit, an idea was expressed about doing a program for students of Collaborative member schools.   The inaugural Collaborative Challenge of 2018 had over 300 students from 9 member schools participating in the development of feasibility plans that address the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The Collaborative Challenge 2019 is open to undergraduates and pre experienced Masters students from member schools.  You can find out more about it in the section below.  We hope to see your school participate!
