Join the Geneva challenge 2020

Join the The Geneva Challenge 2020: the Advancing Development Goals International Contest for Graduate Students.

The Geneva Challenge is a project funded by Swiss Ambassador Jenö Staehelin and aims to encourage interdisciplinary problem solving analysis among master’s students on advancing human development within the scope of a relevant topic. This year, students are invited to develop analysis-based proposals on “The Challenges of Social Inclusion“.

As the key to this issue is an interdisciplinary solution, crossing traditional boundaries between academic disciplines, we are inviting master’s students from all academic programmes and from anywhere in the world to provide helpful strategic recommendations. Five prizes, one per continent, will be distributed.

Teams of 3-5 master students must submit an 8,000 word proposal which:

  • identifies a challenge stemming from social inclusion;
  • constructs an interdisciplinary analysis on how it affects different aspects of development in a specific (but transposable) context;
  • proposes innovation at the policy, practice, process or technology levels turning the challenge into development opportunity.

The Geneva Challenge 2020 will distribute 25,000 CHF in monetary prizes and the five finalist teams will be invited (travel and accommodation expenses covered) to publicly present their work in Geneva before a panel of high-level experts. Networking opportunities are also envisioned as part of the prize package.

Registration closes on 23 March 2020. Submission are due by 17 July 2020.
