The Misk Foundations: Inviting applications for ‘Misk Grand Challenges’ to devise and demonstrate ways to positively engage young people (under the age of 30) in Global Citizenship at scale and in depth.

Funding brief: They are seeking innovators to devise and demonstrate ways to positively engage young people (under the age of 30) in Global Citizenship at scale and in depth.

A young person’s personal interaction with a social cause can easily turn into lifelong commitment. Youth who have had positive experiences in contributing to, for example, the struggle to end disease, tackle gender inequality or educate young people, close at hand, are likely to make sustained contributions to that cause. Flying young people around the world to see first-hand different challenges facing different groups achieves deep engagement, but is not scalable. At the other end of the spectrum is engagement that requires little effort but has little lasting impact on the person involved. This engagement has scale, but not depth.

● Outline concepts that have the potential to be scaled up.

● There are no geographic constraints as to where in the world proposals should be focused.
● Are entirely online and technology-based, or blended technology and face-to-face, or predominantly offline, with limited use of technology.

● Show how the proposed concept or program could in the future achieve the scale and depth of engagement with a clear set of measurements at the pilot stage.
● Describe the innovative approach captured by the concept. The initial pilot project must test the concept at some minimal scale that produces data upon which decisions for future funding could be made.
