Join the North American Youth Innovation Challenge Community!

Submit your bold idea for the chance to receive C$5,000 in seed funding and present your innovation to North America’s top environmental officials in Charlottetown, Canada this summer.

North America is facing urgent and complex sustainability challenges. Citizen leadership—including youth—is more important than ever to keep momentum going toward adoption of cleaner, carbon-neutral technologies and policies that ensure sustainable growth and job creation across North America.

As today’s visionaries and tomorrow’s decision-makers, young leaders will drive the green growth innovations that are critical to a sustainable future.

Canada, Mexico and the United States need innovative science, technology and business solutions to the following shared North American challenges:

  • Reducing air emissions
  • Reducing and diverting food waste
  • Preventing and managing invasive species
  • Reducing and managing marine litter
  • Mitigating the impacts of ocean acidification

Show us what you've got! Submit your bright idea and benefit from the collective intelligence of youth across North America.
