21 Day Challenge - About | UC Centre for Entrepreneurship

21 Day Pacific Challenge

The 21 Day Pacific Challenge brings teams of students from across the university together to solve a problem in a Pacific nation. The Challenge is a competition like no other, providing students with the opportunity to make a real impact on international communities in need.

In 2016 the Challenge focuses on Niue, with students focusing on assisting the Niuean community to conserve, protect and sustainably manage its food supply in a way that can be self-sufficient.


The 21 Day Pacific Challenge is officially launched on the 5th of May in the John Britten Building. On the evening, the student teams were announced and students had the opportunity to meet each other and their mentors.
