Deadline: Rolling Basis

The International Development House (IDHouse) invites you to apply for UNITE 2030, the world’s global forum of aspiring and active young worldchangers working together to solve the world’s most critical challenges. UNITE 2030 is an opportunity for you to build skills, grow teams, access tools, collaborate, share best practices, foster innovation, build community and develop new ideas that change the world.

It’s not just a 48-hour summit, but a community of worldchangers who are taking actions on the critical issues facing our world. After you attend the Summit, you becomes a permanent member of the UNITE 2030 Community, and you’ll have access to all the tools, training, and community & one-on-one support available to UNITE 2030 Ambassadors.

UNITE 2030 is a global, virtual “hackathon” style Summit that will empower you to create social change in your community and the world. We host several Summits throughout the year, and at each summit, you will work in a team 3-5 worldchangers from different countries, “hacking” to develop a solution to a global challenge. After working with their teams for two days, and attending a wide variety of workshops, teams will then present their solution in the form of an “Action Plan” which is, in essence, a business plan, that lays the groundwork for their worldchanging solution.

The themes for the 2019 Summits are:

  • March 2 -3: UNITE 2030 – International Women’s Day
  • April 13 – 14: UNITE 2030 – Kick Out Discrimination (in Partnership with Chelsea Football Club and the World Jewish Congress)

  • September 14 – 16: UNITE 2030 – Hack for Health and Hygiene
  • December 7 – 8: UNITE 2030: Planning for Peace

Following the Summit, participants will become UNITE 2030 Ambassadors, allowing you to create change on a local level, giving you access to events, resources and toolkits, and group/one-on-one support that can help you change the world.
