#kids2030 Challenge

Kids have the power to change the world.

We’re challenging kids to address world issues, innovate with technology, and make a difference.

A decade of action

If you haven’t already heard, 2030 is going to be a really important year. In 2015, the United Nations launched the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with the aim to build a better world by 2030. With 10 years left to go, we must all work towards the SDGs to turn things around and create a better future.

Most importantly, kids need to be involved — it’s their future at stake. So we’re challenging them to take part.

The #kids2030 Challenge — Coming soon!

This October, we’re launching our first ever #kids2030 Challenge — an annual event that will take place every year until 2030.

The Challenge will hand the power over to our youngest leaders, connect communities, spark critical thinking, and drive solution-oriented creativity.

It will challenge kids to use their curiosity and imagination to make a difference — from an individual, to collective, to global scale.

The Challenge opens on October 26, 2020 and will run until March 26, 2021

The Challenge unites kids with the SDGs
