The Reward

Win a trip to a world changing project in Africa

Three winners will be selected amongst the participants. They will be crowned ‘Best Global Young Leaders in Sustainability 2014’.

The participants will travel to the Netherlands in teams of two as per country two professionals will be chosen. Thus, each participant has one buddy. During the Challenge it is your buddy’s task to support you to become a winner. And if you win, your buddy wins too.

The reward will be an exciting and life changing journey. The winners of the first Nudge Leadership Challenge experienced the North Pole and this April the 2013 winners will embark upon a mission to China.

The winners (and their buddies!) of the 2014 Nudge Global Leadership Challenge will go to Africa to put their leadership skills to the test. During the course of 10 days they will form an integral part of one of the WakaWaka programmes. They will work together closely with the WakaWaka leaders and will have the opportunity to help change the lives of thousands of people.

Our network partner WakaWaka is an impact driven, social venture that fights to abolish energy poverty throughout the world. They are committed to a sustainable business model that makes the distribution of renewable energy-based lighting and power available and cost-effective for 1.2 billion households that lack access to electricity.

This mission to Africa will take place in 2015. Nudge and WakaWaka will organise the journey together with the winners.
