The Challenge and COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

The Nudge Global Impact Challenge team wants to confirm that the Challenge will continue as scheduled starting 17 August. Due to Covid-19 the Challenge team has formulated a contingency plan in which the four-day learning experience in the Netherlands (which normally takes place two months after the start of the programme, mid October) has been transformed into an online programme running from October 2020 – April 2021.

At the same time, an online community platform has been launched (Nudge Workplace) to connect the participants with each other and the team.

On 21 and 22 June 2021 a Grand Finale closure event will be organised in the Netherlands including the Nudge Global Impact Awards night in the Peace Palace, The Hague.

Do not hesitate to contact us via globalchallenge@nudge.nl if you have any questions.

A unique online learning experience for future leaders who want to make a global difference

We have combined leadership, sustainability and impact creation in an eight-month development programme (August 2020 – April 2021), inviting young professionals to realise their very own sustainability impact plan. We are here to provide you with the knowledge, inspiration and skills to become a force for change.

During the online programme, you will receive the necessary tools to realise the change you envision. We invite ambitious young professionals (23 – 33 yrs) to team up and rise to the Nudge Global Impact Challenge.





Theme 2020: Prosperity for all – the Great Reset

Young leaders building a better world for people and our planet

When aiming for prosperity for all, we work towards a world in which there is no poverty. A world where inequalities are reduced. Where education, healthcare and basic human rights, such as clean water and sanitation, are accessible for everyone.

However, this must be done within the planetary boundaries. The ‘all’ have to include future generations and all species that are dependent on, and crucial for our planet’s ecosystem.

To accomplish this there is a need for leaders who work together towards a sustainable and inclusive future. Leaders who are not afraid of change, but rather see it as a powerful tool to create impact towards a world they want to live in. To achieve well-being for all.
