MIT's Solve 2019 Global Challenges have launched. Anyone, anywhere, can submit a solution by July 1 for a chance to win $725,000+ in prize funding.
Solve advances solutions from tech entrepreneurs to address the world's most pressing problems. Solve issues four challenges each year:
- Circular Economy - How can people create and consume goods that are renewable, repairable, reusable, and recyclable?
- Community-Driven Innovation - How can citizens and communities creat and iomprove social inclusion and shared prosperity?
- Early Childhood Development - How can all children under five develop the critical learning and cognitive skills they need to reach their full potential?
- Healthy Cities - How can urban residents design and live in environments that promote physical and mental health?
Solve then deploys its global community of private, public, and nonprofit leaders to form the partnerships these Solvers need to scale their impact.
