The Educators' Challenge aims to encourage the development of innovative approaches to engage students and broader audiences in discussions on better frameworks of global collaboration. These approaches should provide a basis for continued ideation and discussion on how we can better address the greatest challenges of our time.

Now that The New Shape Prize has closed, the process of examining the submitted ideas has begun. During this time of assessment and up till the New Shape Forum, we are urging educators to take on the significant task of creating knowledge about global institutions and engagement around institutional reform through the Educators’ Challenge.

Educators of all sorts – teachers in schools and universities, journalists, content creators, PR-professionals, game developers, curators and influencers – all have a vital role to play in steering the conversation and increasing knowledge and positive action. We call on all of you who identify as educators to be part of this growing movement and to make a difference as only you uniquely can.

The competition platform will open for entries on 1 November 2017.

The final submission deadline is 30 June 2018.

Results will be announced in November 2018.
