ChangeX is an innovation and social entrepreneurship program for teenagers who want to tackle the world’s biggest problems in new ways.

This summer, join teams of students from across North America to take on one of humanity’s greatest problems: climate change. With the guidance of leading scientists and entrepreneurs, every week your team will receive instructions for activities that will help you to develop and test a unique solution to this challenge in your community. Along the way, you’ll also participate in interactive webinars, earn prizes, and collaborate with other teams using our ChangeX app and website. The program schedule is highly flexible, with only one hard deadline: final proposals are due to our judges by August 20, 2017. Ready to get started?

Next challenge begins June 19, 2017
