The Social Shifters and Rathbones seek applications to the Global Climate Challenge. The program is designed to enable young people (18-30 years) to explore ideas that will help accelerate the shift to net zero emissions. The challenge looks for ideas, projects and business solutions from anywhere in the world that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Participants get free access to a digital Incubator program and compete for an award of US$10 thousand to implement their idea.
We are particularly interested in solutions that:
- Help make the shift to clean and renewable energy
- Reduce the consumption of fossil fuels
- Support the switch to sustainable transport
- Heat our homes in an energy-efficient way
- Reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill
- Promote responsible consumption
- Scale down plastic pollution
- Restore our forests and oceans to help absorb CO2
All eligible entrants will receive free access to our Digital Incubator program, including access to e-learning, exclusive events, and online coaching.
Finalists will be matched with coaches from some of the world’s leading companies.
The winner of the Global Climate Challenge will receive a $10,000 USD award, and all shortlisted finalists will get access to mentorship and opportunities for media publicity.
Climate change is now affecting every country. It is disrupting economies and affecting lives. Weather patterns are changing, sea levels are rising, and weather events are becoming more extreme. While global emissions have increased by almost 50 per cent since 1990, it is not
too late to limit the increase in the global temperature. But urgent action is required, now.
