"As young professionals, what is one important change you would like to see made to Greater Vancouver's transportation system by 2030?"

That is the question that we posed to our Peer Leadership Forum teams in early 2018, with a challenge to work together and craft a unique and innovative proposal.

Teams have submitted reports on this topic, with the hopes of earning the chance to step on stage at our Big Idea Pitch Contest this April.

The top six teams will be chosen to pitch their ideas to a live panel of judges – in hopes of being declared the 2018 Big Idea champions. This year's competition promises to be engaging, enlightening, and above all else, entertaining.

Want to be part of the live audience at CBC Vancouver's studios? Join us for this thrilling Big Idea Pitch Contest!
