Lead 2030 - Challenges for the Sustainable Development Goals
Deadline: 5 January 2019.
From ending extreme poverty to protecting our oceans, the Sustainable Development Goals are an ambitious plan to create a sustainable future.
To make this future a reality, we need a generation of young leaders who are meaningfully engaged with the Global Goals and are working purposefully to achieve them.
Powered by some of the world’s leading businesses, Lead2030 will find, fund and accelerate youth-led solutions for each Global Goal and enable young innovators to scale and accelerate their impact.
This challenge seeks solutions which meet the following criteria:
- Aligned: Evidently aligned with the SDGs.
- Youth-led: Founded by a person aged 18 - 30.
- Focussed: Well-structured time horizon, identified key stakeholders and beneficiaries, and proposed outcomes that are reasonable and well thought out.
- Proven: Readily available, in or past implementation phase.
- Impactful: Solutions must have a positive social impact, for example generating employment, eradicating poverty, or developing skills.
- Measurable: Impacts of solutions must have been adequately measured and/or be measurable.
- Financially Viable: Must be able to achieve efficiency and to survive on their own through the resources they generate and/or the investments and donations they attract.
- Scalable: Potential to perform as well or better after expanding in scope or size and/or being transported to other regions.
In its first year, Lead2030 will provide $500,000 to the most impactful youth-led initiatives, businesses or movements that are making a tangible impact on a selected Sustainable Development Goal. Funding is equally divided across 10 SDG Challenges, each of which is supported by a Lead2030 Challenge Partner. In addition to funding, each Challenge Winner will be connected with a team of expert mentors from the supporting business and its partners.
Deadline: 5 January 2019
