Tailored SDG-Challenge

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), or the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

The mission of the SDG-Challenge is to inspire and mobilize students and companies to work together on the SDGs. 

During the challenge, your organization teams up with a student consultant team, consisting of (international) students with mixed backgrounds. 

Together, you work on creating a solution for your organization’s SDG-Challenge. The goal is to come up with a solution that not only impacts your company, but also the sector as a whole and the SDGs. In order to ensure a practical approach, Soapbox developed the ‘SDG pressure cooker’. By following this method, the teams will go from the initial challenge to actual tangible and actionable ideas in just one day. To ensure a smooth progression, Soapbox will guide the participants in this process.

Our aim is to trigger youngsters to pursue a (professional/personal) career in making the world more future-proof and we want the business to use the solutions to “sustainalize” their business.
