Shaping a better future

The challenge was to use the recovery in the aftermath of the pandemic to build back better.

Young global changemakers who took up our challenge have produced some brilliant ideas to change the world.

After a review phase, we have selected the standout ideas to present to panels. They will be will be asked to present again – with more detail. A public vote will confirm the winning proposal. Key dates are:

  • 28 September: announce finalists
  • 01 October: finalists submit updated proposals
  • 08 October: finalist webinar presentations, followed by a public vote

Young participants can use our festival to enhance their CVs and LinkedIn profiles – with certificates to recognise their achievement.
