2020 PRME Innovation Challenge Finale

to
The PRME Innovation Challenge (IC) brings together students from Advanced PRME schools to engage with companies to build sustainable business solutions addressing their Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) / corporate social responsibility objectives. The programme aims to connect companies with next generation innovators and entrepreneurs to catalyze corporate innovation to advance the SDGs. 

The two participating companies for this year's IC are Manitou Group and Rockwell Automation. They have each defined a challenge specific to their own business and two teams of students have been working with each of the companies to develop a solution to the company-specific challenge.

This event is the IC Finale where the two student teams will present their innovative solutions to the wider PRME and UN Global Compact communities. The student presentations will be evaluated by a panel of experts representing business, academia and the UN, based on a set of criteria, such as originality, feasibility, clarity of presentation, and overall impact of their solutions.

As this is a virtual event, you will be able to tune in and take part of the IC Finale by means of online comments and questions. We look forward to engaging with an active audience interested in what young minds have to say about corporate innovation to advance the SDGs.
