Idea pitch

BRIDGE is about bringing European countries (Ukraine,Russia, Poland, Slovakia) together, to grow not only as countries but as a continent. Our big goal is to start the process of building better relationships between European nations by taking actions towards solving worldwide issues agreed by United Nations, and what is more to give young people an opportunity to feel their unique contribution by using their fresh and individual approach.

Where will your idea take place?

Slovakia, Ukraine, Russia, Poland

Why does Europe need your idea?

The concept of our project allows us to focus not only on solving one social issue but addresses to multiple issues existing in the society at the same time, namely: lack of entrepreneurial outlook, peace between countries, lack of employment opportunities, economic stagnation in the European region.

What is your impact?

We want to bring the youth of the 4 countries together in order to initiate a start-up revolution, contributing to employment and economy of the region. As a result - 5 successful start-ups by the end of the year, higher level of collaboration between the countries-participants, engagement of 100+ students.

How do you get there?

We as organization are striving for peace and fulfillment of humankind’s potential. We enable young people to develop their leadership potential through learning from practical experiences in challenging environments. We do this through cross-cultural exchanges.
To reach our goal we will:
Bring youth from different countries together to establish peace.
Create projects/opportunities for students to work in.
Make project as viral as possible to involve the most interested in the outcome youth.
Find concrete solutions of the world's problems that will make contribution in achieving 17 SDGs.
