Call for Q1 - 2022 Awards for School Students

PACT2030 which stands for Pledge, Act, Change, Transform – 2030; is a social enterprise which has been constituted to empower academic institutions to think beyond their boundaries and care for the world. Institutions have started to commit towards Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on an ongoing basis, but we know that the power of togetherness is much mightier. As the name suggests, PACT2030 has a long-term vision and is a scalable model on global platforms.

 

The United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is one of the most ambitious and vital global agreements. Educational institutions have a leading role in helping society to achieve the Global SDGs through leadership, research, teaching and learning, campus operations, and community service. As living laboratories of transformation and innovation, the academic engagement, partnerships, and exemplar models are crucial to empower the next generations, advance SDGs' progress, and foster a resilient and equitable future.

What better way to empower our future, than to give power and support to young minds - the future is for them indeed. So PACT2030 has created 3 funded awards for students with ideas in any of the 17 SDGs which can be implemented in their community.
