Competitions bring awareness to sustainability through campus life. Through education, demonstration, and organization, these short term events and national competitions highlight specific conservation areas and everyday routines in a way that creates change in lifestyles and encourages reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
There are several competitions coordinated through various iCAP themes, such as Energy, Zero Waste, and Land and Water. There are also more general sustainability competitions, such as the Reimagine Our Future competition about the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
