Groups of students can apply for a share of $500 000 (around R7 million) in funding for innovative youth-led businesses, social movements or projects that help to address 10 of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Several countries have signed on to the UN’s plan to create a better world by 2030. The goals centre on a sustainable future for people and the environment, and encompass 17 areas of international concern, from hunger to peace and justice.
To accelerate reaching these goals, some of the world’s leading businesses have come together to provide funding, and find and fast-track impactful, youth-led solutions for each SDG. This coalition of businesses is formed by One Young World and is called Lead2030.
The aim of the project is to build a generation of young leaders who are meaningfully engaged with ensuring the sustainability of the planet, its people and cultures.
The 10 goals to achieve by 2030 that applicants are encouraged to address are:
