#IdeasChangeLives is our global innovation challenge to find digital solutions to some of the world’s greatest problems. We believe anyone could have an idea that has the power to change lives. No matter who they are or where they are.
We’re looking for people with a fresh, entrepreneurial spirit and a big idea that has the potential to make a positive impact for communities across the globe. We’re looking for thoughtful, creative and unusual digital solutions.
We believe anyone could have an idea that has the power to change lives. No matter who they are or where they are. The winning pitch will get £20,000 to invest in their idea, and mentorship and support from the British Council.
