The young academics track builds around the students solving real life challenges proposed by a partnering organisation. As a challenge partner you get to propose a sustainability and inclusion challenge that links to one or several of the themes of the congress. We then match your challenge with 3-5 student teams from our partnering countries and support their process in developing relevant ideas and concptual solutions that will be showcasd at the congress.
There are many ways in which you and your organisation can join the initiative apart from providing sponsorships or challenges. We are looking for mentors, speakers, judges, companies to visit and much more.
If you are interested in hearing more about the possibility of collaboration, please contact us.
3 TRACKS OF INVOLVEMENT
Young and passionate change-makers from youth organisations across the world (advocating and creating change within one or several of the 6 congress themes) are given a voice to bring forward insights and visions from their work into the summit with a focus on “SUSTAINABLE FUTURES – LEAVE NO ONE BEHIND”. Resulting in a strengthened and new international network of youth organisations who have given their voice and perspectives in the congress for joint action.
