One Young World/Deloitte Lead2030 Challenge 

Deadline: 1st March, 2024

Summary: The climate crisis is one of the most important societal challenges of our time. Reduced emissions, less pollution, and healthier ecosystems are achievable if we act now. As the world continues to recover from the pandemic, it is critical that we don’t just return to the ways of doing things as before; we must continue taking climate actions to avoid the most catastrophic effects of climate change. To reach the goals of the Paris Agreement, we all must use this moment to find and develop collective and innovative solutions. We must work together in building a better, more sustainable, future.

Details: At Deloitte we are committed to addressing climate change both within our organization and beyond through our strategic initiative, WorldClimate, which aims to deliver on this global ambition. We recognize that change starts within, and we must set and meet higher standards for ourselves, empower our professionals and connect with our broader ecosystem to create solutions that facilitate the transition to a low carbon economy. We must work collectively to accomplish change.

In line with Deloitte’s ambition to address climate change through ecosystem engagement, the challenge seeks to support scalable youth-led solutions that:

  • Reduce the impacts of climate change, and/or empower others to act on climate change
  • Address root causes of the issue
