The Social Innovation Challenge for combating hunger and injustice


The Social Innovation Challenge is a collective effort of Civil Society Academy, Welthungerhilfe and Impact Hub. Through the Challenge, we aim at developing ground-breaking innovations to tackle hunger and social injustice over the next 18 months. The process includes application of innovators on two specific challenges, a design thinking process, development of prototypes as well as piloting of the most promising solutions.

We do not need a sophisticated proposal!

Answering a few questions and submit a 3-minute video or a mood-board that illustrates your passion and creative skills is all you need to enter the race!
