Match Studio wants to hear from students from any discipline across UniSA interested in taking part in a team-based challenge working with a community organisation or government agency.

Teams identify and select an issue related to the development and sustainability of inclusive and age friendly communities. The outcome of which is either a product, policy, service or system that supports age friendliness in our communities.

Age Friendly communities enable people of all ages to actively participate in community activities and treats everyone with respect, regardless of their age.

What is Match Tournament?

  • Match Tournament is a 12 week challenge hosted by UniSA's Match Studio that will give you credit for a 4.5 unit course.
  • It will challenge 6 interdisciplinary teams comprising of 4 students each led by an academic and will culminate in a Grand Slam Pitch Event. Teams may include undergraduate and up to 2 postgraduate students.
  • Teams will work with a community organisation or government agency and representatives from an associated policy agency to identify issues related to the development and sustainability of inclusive and age friendly communities - real life experience!
  • Match Tournament supports learning about how to access and understand what the plethora of data collected about us says about our communities. It will then step you through design-thinking and co-design processes to develop either a product, policy, service or system that supports age friendliness in our communities.
  • The winning team is funded to go to Copenhagen during mid-term break in September to meet with participants of a sister challenge as well as visit other organisations and institutions related to our collective efforts.
