Why this Challenge?

A leader needs a vision and a strategy. Where are we now? Where do we want to be in the future? How are we getting there? And at what expense?

This last question is becoming more and more pressing. We will need a second planet Earth within 20 years if we want to maintain our current lifestyle. If we continue like this, there will be little left to lead, let alone manage, in 20 years’ time. Things must change drastically and we need innovative and connective leaders to make this change happen. Social enterprise and B Corp Nudge has joined forces with CEIBS, our global knowledge partner, to undertake an ambitious but vital quest: the search for our world’s leaders of the future.

We live in drastically changing times. The leaders of the future have to develop a deep understanding of the new reality: resources are becoming scarce, climate change is a given, fair distribution of wealth is one of the major topics. Globalisation combined with the ever faster development of technology asks for new business models and requires a whole new skill set of our future leaders. The Nudge Global Impact Challenge will provide you with a clear view on this new reality and helps you develop the skills and competencies you need to become an influencer and change maker.

Equipping the leaders of the future

Nudge has developed an 8 months programme (August 2017 – April 2018) as an opportunity for young future leaders to equip themselves with the necessary leadership skills, network and publicity to realise their goals and create true impact. In August and September the participants write their impact plan and interview their CEO and other influencers.

The highlight of the Challenge is the exceptional and demanding three-day learning experience in the Netherlands, 26 – 28 October 2017. The participants will be challenged to share their visions and work, to excel in debate and dialogue, to inspire with speeches and to show team spirit. On occasion they will be granted to lean back and listen to world-class speakers, after which they will sink their teeth into a Global Challenge to compete for the award Best Global Young Leader in Sustainability 2017.

After the three days in The Netherlands (November 2017 – April 2018) it is up to the participants to show their leadership and realise their impact plan with the help of Nudge and anyone else they have connected with for support in this important phase.  

Inspired by the United Nations SDG’s, this year’s Challenge is themed GDP or Sustainable Development Goals? nudging young leaders towards sustainable economics. We want to prepare the future leaders to act upon the challenges our world is facing.
