Global Young Voices’ mission is to give a voice to young people, in order to promote the values of multi-culture, social inclusion and internationality. GYV SDGs Cup, a project in partnership with RadiciGroup, represents for us a way to give special value to our mission. In fact, through this initiative, we want to give visibility to your stories and do our part in raising awareness about the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals among young people. Confident that we will receive many applications, we offer you an additional push to start acting to make a difference:
Sustainability Project Lead
The initiative consists in a competition between projects, foundations, non-profit organizations or start-ups (already founded or in the process of being launched) run by young people who aim, through their work, at reaching one or more of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. The winner of the competition will receive a prize of € 1,000 that can be used to finance his or her initiative.
Age: Applicants must be below the age of 30.
Content: only initiatives that aim clearly at reaching one or more UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Deadline: Applications will be accepted until September 28th 2019. Evaluations will be examined on a rolling bases so we encourage early submissions. To apply, please complete the form below.
After having collected all the applications, we, together with our partner RadiciGroup, will select the most valuable ones, complying with all the parameters of the competition. Those applications will be the finalists, competing for the prize. As such, they will be edited and then published on our social media platforms and website, gaining wide visibility.
From then, our audience will be the judge. Facebook is for Global Young Voices the most successful platform, with more than 90,000 followers. Therefore, the application that receives the most likes (or any other positive emoticon) on Global Young Voices’ Facebook page will be the winner of the competition. Voting will be possible up until December 20th 2019.
