The Climate Action Youth Design Challenge is a free online design thinking challenge that empowers you to consider how you can take climate action. It empowers you to identify problems, reframe them as opportunities, develop a solution and create a prototype.

This is a challenge you can do on your own or with a friend, team or family member. It can also be run by your teachers or parents. You need to enter your idea by the 21st of March to be eligible.

You need to choose one of the following themes to focus on:

  • Renewable and responsible energy use: scary state. Only 1/5th of the world’s final energy consumption in 2013 was from renewable sources.
  • Preserving our water supply: Only 3% of the world’s water is fresh (drinkable), and humans are using it faster than nature can replenish it.
  • Sustainable cities: Currently, cities contribute more than 70 per cent of global carbon emissions and over 60 per cent of resource use.
