We invite you to submit a solvable problem to be considered for one of the collaborative action tracks at the next Global Engagement Forum: Live, a two-day event this fall that will bring together leaders from the private, public, and social sectors to develop cross-sector concepts that address urgent, yet solvable problems within the United Nations Global Goals.
Many of the world’s most pressing challenges identified within the Goals are inherently solvable because solutions have already been tested and proven on a smaller scale.
Join us. Submit your idea by February 28 and take on a new challenge.
THE SELECTED IDEA WILL RECEIVE:
A dedicated track at the next Global Engagement Forum: Live
THE NOMINEE WILL RECEIVE:
Stage recognition at the Global Engagement Forum: Live and promotions
Five tickets to this invite-only event

What's Your Problem?
What’s your solvable problem? Here are a couple of guidelines. Keep in mind, you don’t need to have actually solved the problem or have everything figured out to apply.
Is this problem relatable? Can people fall in love with it?
Is it widely acknowledged? Have local communities, scientists, governments, nonprofits, companies, or academics recognized the challenge?
Have you seen this problem being solved somewhere else? What evidence is there?
What, if any, resources are available to solve this challenge? Technology, funding, or research? (Hint: It doesn’t need to come from your organization)
Are you up for the challenge?
