2020 Application Statistics

As the world lives through a crisis unprecedented in recent history, we have launched our first Global Open Call to Action for Innovators for the Future. The COVID-19 crisis exposes the vulnerabilities of our connected societies, our economies, our ways of life. Rarely has even the near future been less certain. Even though pandemics have been part of human history throughout the centuries, we realise that we are not prepared. And it shows more than ever the need for collective action, shared knowledge, solidarity and creativity.

In our Call for Innovators we look for innovative projects and initiatives in our focus areas of Life, Empowerment, and Society. We look for projects that are making positive and substantial impacts on communities and their futures, by addressing the urgency of the moment and staying committed to the future. We are currently receiving and reviewing applications from projects that have previously registered. We will recognise exemplary projects through our digital platforms and networks, and at our Flagship Conference we will select the best projects to The Futures Project’s Social Impact Accelerator, a customised training and mentoring program designed to support innovators in growing their impact.

Registration Closed

This Call to Action is organised by The Futures Project as a contribution to the UN75 Global Conversation Initiative:

In the face of the current unprecedented global challenge, we need unprecedented solidarity, collaboration, and commitment to action. The Futures Project Call to Action brings these values, which are also at the heart of the UN@75 initiative and digital cooperation, to life. Now more than ever, we must work together on a global scale to build our shared future, through innovation, creativity, and technologies for good. I am proud to welcome The Futures Project Call to Action and its vital contribution to rising to the urgency of the moment.
