We are pleased to announce the launch of the first global Youth4South Solution Awareness Contest aimed to promote the South-South Youth Leadership in advancing Sustainable Development Agenda 2030.
In the framework of the Contest, individual young leaders or youth-led organizations from developing countries are invited to nominate their development solutions addressing one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Development solutions are to be submitted in the format of a short Youtube video of up to 100 seconds.
Up to 17 development solutions that meet the relevance criteria will be shortlisted based on the number of likes received on the Youth4South page. The shortlisted development solutions will then be reviewed by the selection panel and will compete for the three Solution Awareness Trophies, of USD 5,000, USD 2,000, and USD 1,000 for the top first, second, and third solution respectively. Solution Awareness Trophy will be used to cover travel, accommodation, and other relevant costs contributing to the demand-driven South-South knowledge exchange involving the winning youth leader/organization.
The winning development solutions will be announced during the Global South-South Development EXPO 2017 that will take place in Antalya, Turkey during 27-30 November 2017.
