Solv[ED] believe young people hold the empathy, power, and ingenuity to solve problems in their communities, the world, and everywhere in between. Solv[ED] sparks a sense of agency in people aged 24 and under, encouraging, inspiring, and supporting them to become problem-solvers.
Solv[ED] know young leaders like you are passionate about solving problems in your communities and globally. As Solv[ED] approach the third year of the COVID-19 pandemic, essential health services are not available to all, economic inequality continues to increase, educational opportunities are interrupted or have disappeared, all while climate change and its effects are front and center for millions of people.
Addressing these challenges can feel overwhelming, especially when confronted with them constantly in the news and online. But digital spaces and tech tools are also powerful enablers for people to take action and ensure a more prosperous, equitable, and peaceful future.
The Solv[ED] Youth Innovation Challenge is an opportunity for you to submit your tech-enabled solution that:
Improves learning opportunities and outcomes for learners across their lifetimes, from early childhood on (Learning)
Supports financial and economic opportunities for all (Economic Prosperity)
Accelerates healthcare access and health outcomes, reducing and, ultimately, eliminating disparities in health (Health)
Takes action to combat climate change and its impacts (Sustainability)
Addresses an unmet social, environmental, or economic need not covered in the four dimensions above.
Whether your solution is a concept, a product that is being prototyped, a service that is being piloted in your local community, or a fully operational nonprofit or for-profit organization, we want to hear from you.
The 10 most promising solutions will be selected by the judges as Solv[ED] Innovators. In addition to getting prize funding, selected Solv[ED] Innovators will receive mentorship and coaching from members of the MIT Solve community.
Are you age 24 and under? Whoever you are, wherever you are in the world, we want to hear from you about your solution!
