The World Bank Group and the Zicklin Center at Wharton are pleased to announce the 2020 Ideas for Action (I4A) competition, which engages young people (18-35 years old) to develop innovative solutions in support of the implementation of the SDGs (https://ideas4action.org).

Ideas for Action provides students and young professionals from around the world with a unique opportunity to help shape the international development agenda and to take an active role in changing the world.

A joint program of the World Bank Group and the Zicklin Center for Business Ethics Research at the Wharton School, Ideas for Action is a knowledge platform connecting young leaders all around the world who are passionate about the future development of our world.

They host an annual competition during which youths from around the world design ideas for financing the UN’s  new development agenda. The competition acts as a catalyst to spark global conversation among millenials and seeks to encourage them to contribute their own voice to the development conversation.

They want you to join this conversation. They want you to change the world.

Implementation
They strive to move from innovative ideas to actionable solutions. They seek to develop scalable partnership models in the fields of entrepreneurship, finance, development economics, technology, health, education, and environment.
Community
Providing young leaders from around the world with access to knowledge, networking opportunities, mentorship, opportunities to connect with like minded youths, a dedicated incubator, and potential financing opportunities.
