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 2021 – April 2022), 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 and personal coaching and guidance to improve your leadership skills. We invite ambitious young professionals (23 – 33 yrs) to team up and rise to the Nudge Global Impact Challenge.

The Challenge and COVID-19

The 12th edition of the Nudge Global Impact Challenge started on 16 August as planned. Like the previous edition, all programme sessions will be conducted online over a period of eight months from September 2021 – April 2022.

On 26 and 27 May 2022, a Grand Finale closure event will take place in the Netherlands including the Nudge Global Impact Awards night in the Peace Palace, The Hague.





Theme 2021: Rebalancing our Planet

Facing reality is tough but necessary. Humanity has been neglecting Planet Earth and we are now confronted with the consequences of our actions. The ecosystems we all depend on are deteriorating more rapidly than ever. Social inequality is increasing. We have taken ownership of our planet, but it is time to reconsider the way we engage with it, ecologically, economically and socially. It is time to acknowledge the interdependence of nature and people. 

We, as human beings, need to take our responsibility and nurture our planet. The earth is the most spectacular and inspiring gift, and we share it with all the other species that also depend on it. It is our home. Nature is our greatest inspiration and it has never been more crucial to protect the natural world. Together we must restore, celebrate and love our planet. 

There is a great need for leaders to build a more sustainable future. We have to face the consequences of our actions and react with humility and courage. We need to be brave, daring and firm. Humanity needs audacious leaders to work towards our common goal of rebalancing our planet.
