Small Is…Challenge goes Global


April 18th, 2011

On Global Youth Service Day, April 15, Peace Child International launched Practical Action’s Small Is…Challenge to its worldwide audience.

 The content of the challenge remains similiar, for young people to learn about inventions of the last 100 years – then to develop an idea for a technology or concept that could help up to lead more sustainable lives in the future.

 The young people who have developed the top ten most impressive ideas will be invited to present their ideas to governments, UN officials and other young people gathered at the Rio2012 Summit or at the UN preparatory meeting in New York in November 2011.
