Sustainable Development Challenge

The origin of our project


What is the Sustainable Development Challenge?

The Sustainable Development Challenge is a platform for Okanagan youth to work on the 17 United Nations’ Global Goals. Teams of youth pick a global goal and then create a project to work on bringing the goal closer to reality. A selection of top teams pitch live to judges and a public audience to compete for the funding needed to make their project a reality.
