Help solve issues around the globe and learn to solve problems using design thinking in one action-packed day.
The global series of Impactathon events helps generate solutions to prepare young people to succeed in the workplace of the future.
“I met so many interesting people and the event was all around fun! It was refreshing to really tackle an important issue that many young people struggle with today.” – Kara Korab, Paris Impactathon
These lively, one-day design challenges encourage teams to come up with creative solutions to a local social issue while following a guided process in design thinking. From promoting entrepreneurship in emerging markets to helping people get the skills they need for the workforce, each event calls on students to solve a challenge facing a local NGO or social enterprise.
We’re looking for the best and brightest to put their heads and creativity to the test! No prior experience is necessary – and it’s free.
