The CEC Youth Innovation Challenge is open to residents of Canada, Mexico and the United States (and its territories) aged 18-30. Participants are encouraged to look beyond incremental solutions and propose bold ideas to leapfrog to solutions that address the complex sustainability challenges facing North America. Ideas will be evaluated based on four criteria: innovation, impact, feasibility/replicability and profitability. Students and young entrepreneurs are invited to propose ideas on a broad range of green growth topics.

The challenge opens 15 January 2018 and idea submissions are due by 3 April 2018.

This is your chance to make a difference! Start posting your ideas, or commenting and voting on those of others today! Ideas can be submitted in English, French or Spanish. For more information and guidelines, visit http://www.cec.ideascale.com.
