Social Ideathon 2021 in Asia and Oceania


First-round applications are now open for Social Ideathon in Asia and Oceania. Social Ideathon 2021 is a program that seeks to engage and support youth who have ideas to tackle some of the most pressing development challenges facing the Asia and Oceania region today. The main idea behind the program is to turn your ideas for social change into action.

It is an accelerated program over the course of two months where you will receive leadership and project design training, group mentoring, and skill-based workshops that are specific to your project idea.

The top twenty ideas will be awarded a mini-grant of $250 USD and the opportunity to accelerate their project to scale.

The competition is focused on the following five SDGs:
