Ideas

In the Ideas phase, we’re calling our global community to submit current projects or proposals  focused on the Challenge topic: solutions addressing urgent global challenges at the intersection of peace, prosperity, and planet in radically new ways. We will be accepting proposals until 5p PST on Monday June 4th.

Read the Challenge Brief for more information on this important topic, and check out our Evaluation Criteria for details on requirements and submission guidelines. Below you'll find more helpful resources, toolkits and how-tos to guide you through the Challenge experience.

Community Webinars:

We hosted our Community Webinars on Tuesday May 22 at 4p PST and Wednesday May 23 at 7:30a PST. The webinars introduced the Challenge team, gave an overview of the 2018 BrideBuilder Challenge, shared tips and tricks for success, and closed with a Q+A. View the Webinar Recording Here, and the Shared Downloadable Content Here.

Translated Resources:

To make this Challenge accessible to our global community, we've translated the Challenge Brief and the Challenge Evaluation Criteria into multiple languages. Please check out the list of translated resources for a version in your language. Please note that, unfortunately, we are only able to evaluate proposals in English at this point in time. If submitting in English is not possible for you or your team, please plan to submit earlier, and send us a note at bridgebuilder@ideo.com. Although we cannot promise capacity to read and evaluate in other languages, we will try to do our best to provide the necessary support.
