One Young World Lead2030 Challenges has opened the application. One Young World – the global forum for young leaders that counts Meghan Markle, Justin Trudeau and Emma Watson as Counsellors – today announces the launch of Lead2030, a new initiative to drive progress on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Supported by some of the world’s most prestigious brands, Lead2030 will find, fund and accelerate the most impactful youth-led solutions that are moving the needle on the SDGs. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals – or Global Goals – were agreed upon by 193 countries in 2015. From ending poverty to protecting the oceans, these goals represent an ambitious to-do list to create a sustainable future by 2030.
The programme is made possible by all the Lead2030 Challenge Partners who have together committed to making half a million dollars available to youth-led projects in its first year.
Each Partner has selected a particular Sustainable Development Goal to support. They have each set specific challenges for their chosen goals.
Chosen solutions to each Challenge will receive $50,000 in funding from their Challenge Partner.
But even more valuable than that, each Lead2030 Challenge Partner is forming a mentorship team to provide you with expert advice and guidance to accelerate your solutions and grow their impact. Select Challenge Winners will receive communications support from Activation Supporter, Porter Novelli.

How it works
In its first year, Lead2030 will provide $500,000 to the most impactful youth-led initiatives, businesses or movements that are making a tangible impact on a selected Sustainable Development Goal. Funding is equally divided across 10 SDG Challenges, each of which is supported by a Lead2030 Challenge Partner. In addition to funding, each Challenge Winner will be connected with a team of expert mentors from the supporting business and its partners. For the opportunity to receive this transformative support, explore the Challenges listed below and apply before 5 January 2019.
