The Educators' Challenge Awards

Hosted by the Institute of Global Affairs and the Global Challenges Foundation

Old Theatre, Old Building

How do we effectively communicate and increase engagement around such daunting issues as climate change, weapons of mass destruction and pandemics, which require improved global cooperation?

Join us on this educational day, and meet the finalists of the Educators' Challenge competition who will pitch their ideas and methods to address some of the most pressing issues of our time.

The evaluation process of the entries was carried out in the autumn of 2018. Thirteen semi-final jury members from BBC Earth, Games for Change, Ashoka and EsGlobal, among others, evaluated the initial entries to the competition. Based on these critiques, twelve finalists were selected with the final jury left to select the ten (10) winners.

At the event, the finalists will pitch their ideas and prizes will be awarded to the most creative and effective proposals progressing pedagogy and audience engagement around global catastrophic risks that require improved global cooperation.

Apart from the awards ceremony, the event will feature a panel discussion and keynote address by influencers and experts invited to share their knowledge and insights.
