Apply for the global youth challenge - Generation Unlimited
Skopje, 13 May 2022 – The third in a row youth challenge “Generation Unlimited” will take place in 40 countries around the world, and you can be part of this global initiative.
UNICEF and the Telekom for Macedonia Foundation invite all young innovators aged 16 to 24 to table ideas for digital solutions to cope with climate change under the motto “Technology for the Planet“.
Secondary school students, University students and interested young people, please register your team of 3 to 5 members and be creators of your future. Ideas will be developed with the help of mentorship by professionals, through design thinking workshops. The best five ideas will receive startup financing and additional mentor’s support in order to further develop their ideas, and two of them will compete at the global challenge where they will have an opportunity to receive additional financing of up to 20,000 US dollars, as well as support from “Generation Unlimited” to expand their solution.
You have a chance to win a global recognition and support in addressing one of humanity’s greatest challenges – climate change. So far, two teams of ours were among the global winners: team eBionics in 2020, and team AndroMeta in 2019.
This year’s UNICEF and Telekom for Macedonia Foundation youth challenge is carried out in cooperation with the Center for Social Innovations BLINK 42 – 21.
UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child, in everything we do. Together with our partners, we work in 190 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere.
