Challenge Design

Thank you to the entire community for sharing your perspectives on designing the next Solve Global Challenges. 

Over the past six months, the Solve team has consulted over 500 cross-sector leaders and experts to determine our 2018 Challenges. 

We hosted 26 Challenge Design Workshops in 8 countries, ranging from Detroit, to Standing Rock, to Riyadh, to London, and to Paris to source insights on the most pressing current problems communities around the world are facing today. 

And in the spirit of open innovation, we encouraged community members to vote and propose new Challenge ideas on the Solve website—receiving more than 12,000 votes.

With the help of the community, the next Solve Challenges are now open for applications:

  • Coastal CommunitiesHow can coastal communities mitigate and adapt to climate change while developing and prospering?
  • Frontlines of HealthHow can communities invest in frontline health workers and services to improve their access to effective and affordable care?
  • Teachers & EducatorsHow can teachers and educators provide accessible, personalized, and creative learning experiences for all?
  • Work of the FutureHow can those left behind by the technology-driven transformations of work create meaningful and prosperous livelihoods for themselves?
