What is the Nudge Global Impact Challenge?

An eight-month development programme (August 2019 – April 2020) about leadership, sustainability and impact including a three-day life-changing learning experience in The Netherlands for 90 young professionals (23 – 33 yrs) from all over the world. During three days in October the immense topics Leadership, Sustainability and Impact will be presented, discussed, taught, debated about, and turned upside down in a never before seen format.

This year’s theme is ‘Sustainability: The Human Factor. Empowering millennials to lead positive change.’

The three-day learning experience and competition for the leaders of the future will be held from 21 – 23 October 2019 in Zeist, the centre of The Netherlands. International world class speakers will share the latest insights in the fields of leadership, sustainability and impact. Participants will gain insight into their own talents and development areas by means of their impact plan, a leadership capacity assessment, teamwork, coaching sessions and diverse workshops. The Nudge Global Impact Awards in the Peace Palace in The Hague, the second evening, is the opportunity to connect with renowned changemakers, an assemblage of CEOs from all over the world and the Nudge Advisory Board.

After three days, 90 friends for life will go back to their countries, sharing the same mindset, knowledge and motivation to make a difference. The Nudge Global Impact Challenge will be the start of an international change network of like-minded peers from all over the world. They will be ready to make a difference wherever they are in the world.



“If you feel gloomy about the state of the world and feel like you will not be able to make a change, partake in the Nudge Global Impact Challenge. It will teach you to have more impact, but also give you new faith in humanity because of all the beautifully inspiring people from all over the world.” – Sabine Oudt (ABN AMRO, The Netherlands)
