About Us

UNITE 2030 is a global, virtual, 48-hour "hackathon" for positive social change. For so long, young people haven’t had a seat at the table. Finally, we are giving you a voice and creating access to new ideas that are shaping our world. 

UNITE 2030 is 100% online, and totally inclusive. We believe that all young people should be able to change the world - regardless of who you are, who you know, and where you're from. Period. Full stop.

UNITE 2030 is a place where young people from around the world can collaborate, share best practices, foster innovation, build community, celebrate success, develop new solutions, and find new ways to translate their vision into action—together online.

How It Works

Forget what you know about traditional summits. The days of conversation and discussion are gone, and the days of creativity, innovation, and action are upon us!

UNITE 2030 is a global, virtual innovation summit that brings together hundreds of young people from across the globe to solve the world's most critical challenges. 

Spend two-days working virtually (that means you don't even have to leave your sofa, taking millennial laziness to the next level!) with an international team to solve a global challenge. Teams will compete to create the most innovative, creative, and feasible solution to their global challenge. 

Attend workshops hosted by world-class professionals, work with mentors who help guide your solution, and develop lasting friendships that transcend borders, language barriers, and cultural differences. 

At UNITE 2030, you'll challenge what you know to be true about your ability and potential to create solutions to global challenges. You'll step beyond your comfort zone to work with complete strangers, and even surprise yourself with what you're able to create in just two days.

 At UNITE 2030, the possibilities are endless for creating opportunities for creating global change in YOUR community and the world - working to leverage the passion of young people, unleash new ideas, and inspire each other to really be the change that we wish to see in the world.

"Through UNITE 2030, I’ve realized how powerful I am as one person and how I can change the world even in the little actions I make each day. Today I believe I have a different outlook on life and that change I’ve been craving will be catapulted into my own actions."

"For a clueless individual, working their way through university but still passionate about leaving an impact, it took 48 hours behind a laptop screen and an entire community of individuals passionate about the SDGs to help me realize my true potential."

"Participating in UNITE 2030 has become one of the best weekends I had in 2018 despite the crazy time zone difference. It was a humbling experience for me working with other people, strangers even, from culturally diverse backgrounds and fields of interest yet are enthusiastically grounded in a common goal. It aided my ability to become assertive in decision-making yet at the same time keep an open mind about inevitable possibilities that would arise in indefinite situations."

"Joining UNITE 2030 was an incredible, exhilarating experience for me. It gave me the opportunity to brainstorm and build a solution tackling SDGs along with world changers I have never met. The two day long summit improved my critical thinking skills as well as expanded my network. I got deeper understanding of ideation, business model planning, and how to solve international challenges."

"After pulling 2 all-nighters (almost), I thought I was dreaming! I am very excited to transfer my experience at UNITE 2030 to a real world project.

Not only did I learn from the keynotes, I learned SO MUCH from my teammates: problems in Cameroon, effective pitches, logistics, etc. Also, most importantly, we got so close as friends!"
