    Enough is enough: Undernutrition contributes to the death of 3 million children under the age of 5 years every year.

    It is a scandal: 800 million people in the world still do not have enough food to lead a healthy and active life.

    We believe that innovation is the key to unlock new promising ideas to combat hunger and social injustice.

    Let 2019 be the change you want to see. We look for innovators like you. Let us change the world together!

    Our Focus
    Innovation and Funding.gif

    Zero Hunger can be achieved by 2030 if:

    • Governments and the international community do significantly more to guarantee rights and essential public services for everyone. This includes specifically gender, land and labour rights as well as public services related to health, nutrition, and basic benefits for the most vulnerable groups.

    • Together we innovate, transfer and scale solutions that help guaranteeing such rights and improve the access, quality and accountability of public services.

    Challenges to you

    Challenge 1: How might we support rural women and their families to access public services that truly help them escape hunger and injustice?​

    Solutions that…

    • Support vulnerable women improving their awareness, access and quality of services and help ensuring their rights at the local level

    • Improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and accountability of state services

    • Provide radical alternatives to current models of service delivery

    Challenge 2: How might we support social activists and concerned citizens to become more powerful in combating hunger and injustice?

    Solutions that…

    • Magnify the voice of concerned citizens, social activists and their constituency to influence state policies at all levels

    • Provide radical and effective alternatives to existing advocacy or campaign methods

    • Support the influential community in developing and enforcing global standards related to hunger and injustice

    Step 1: Pick a challenge

    Step 2: Apply online

    Step 3: Upload a video or mood board (see criteria in FAQs)
