Hello everyone! We are about a month away from releasing the prompt, and a couple months away from the deadline for submissions. So far, we have about 500 registrants and a handful of teams signed up, and we hope more people register as time nears.

If you haven’t already, follow us on Twitter to stay in the know of competition details. We will also release tips and questions that will spark ideas and guide you in structuring your proposals. We want to make #ideasforaction an active topic of discussion. If you’re on Twitter, give us a shout-out, introduce yourselves, introduce your ideas, and engage with us!

Our partner YABT has created a video promoting the competition in Portuguese, Spanish, and English. Watch and share the videos with your Portuguese and Spanish speaking networks:

The Stockholm Environment Institute will host an upcoming seminar: What Could the Sustainable Development Goals Mean for Sweden and Europe? This seminar will be held on November 27th with representatives of civil society, the Swedish government, and the European Commission. The event will be livestreamed. Read more about the event here.

In the next couple weeks, we will begin posting information to aid in addressing each of the pillars of the competition. Stay tuned!

We are excited for you all to share your ideas with us. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and we’ll talk to you soon!
