One Young World Lead2030

In 2015, 193 countries adopted the Sustainable Development Goals, an ambitious road map to create a better world by 2030.

Formed by One Young World, Lead2030 is the first coalition of global businesses working together to support youth-led innovation for the Sustainable Development Goals.

The Sustainable Development Goals

From ending extreme poverty to protecting our oceans, the Sustainable Development Goals are an ambitious plan to create a sustainable future.

To make this future a reality, we need a generation of young leaders who are meaningfully engaged with the Global Goals and are working purposefully to achieve them.

Powered by some of the world’s leading businesses, Lead2030 will find, fund and accelerate youth-led solutions for each Global Goal and enable young innovators to scale and accelerate their impact.

How it works

In its first year, Lead2030 will provide $500,000 to the most impactful youth-led initiatives, businesses or movements that are making a tangible impact on a selected Sustainable Development Goal.

Funding is equally divided across 10 SDG Challenges, each of which is supported by a Lead2030 Challenge Partner.

In addition to funding, each Challenge Winner will be connected with a team of expert mentors from the supporting business and its partners.
