Challenge:Future is an open youth competition that demonstrates the youth creativity, their high potential and ability to foresee the future. It is the cross bridge of youth, schools, corporate companies and global challenges.
IDEATION – CREATION – INNOVATION
From the process of public IDEATION (ideas imagination) during the first-round challenges linked to the six challenge themes, the semi-finalist teams will be lead to development of CREATIVE PROPOSITIONS for corporate/organization challenges. The finalists will further elaborate them into INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS, integrating specific information and/or feedbacks received from companies.
To support the youth’s dreams and to help them achieve their visions, a EUR 20.000 award is given to the best team selected by community, expert judges and corporates. Additionally, several other awards will be given to the best corporate solutions and all members of the Finalist teams will be invited to Bled, with fully covered costs for the Finals.

Apart from participating in a unique challenge, C:F Ambassadors will get the opportunity to earn extra sparks through individual and group achievements. We will also be rewarding successful ambassadors with special certificates (that will look super cool on your CV ;)) and you will be more likely to be chosen as a C:F intern, if you'll be interested in that as well. Plus, you'll always know what's coming next on Challenge:Future.
So, are you ready for a new challenge? You can become a C:F Ambassador if you've participated in at least one of our challenges (Quick Challenge or main open challenges). If you meet this requirement, send an e-mail to Alja at firstname.lastname@example.org and make sure you answer these two questions:
