Young people are increasingly concerned about the world they will inherit, and this is a great opportunity for the next generations to raise their voice and explore how their opinions and ideas can help build a better future society in a modern digital context. Topics will include: Racism, Health, Climate Change, Gender Equality and Education.
Participants will receive exclusive mentorship opportunities with industry experts on topics like entrepreneurship, policy decision making, and public speaking. The Challenge also features a highly-anticipated, open to the public, Speaker Series, which will cover related topics including: health, gender equality, racism, and education. Winners will receive cash prizes, as well as the chance to discuss the results of their project with policymakers in Ottawa, Canada (for European participants) or Brussels, Belgium (for Canadian participants).
