King’s has signed on to participate in the Map the System Challenge. This competition based program encourages students from across disciplines to think differently about social and environmental change. Students are asked to select a social or environmental issue. Students are required to explore, probe and research all the connecting elements and factors around it and present an issue back in way that people can understand, share, and learn from.

More information about the program is located at http://mapthesystem.sbs.ox.ac.uk/

This would be great experiential learning opportunity for students to add to their experience at King’s as a further incentive, I have also added to the Co-curricular Record Program at King’s. We ask if you could promote amongst students in your programs. We will be further promoting via social media, during Involvement Week and in Thing’s at King’s in the coming weeks.
