The Fishbowl Challenge brings college students from around the world together to solve the world’s most complex social and environmental problems.

Their different cultural, social, and geographic insights will enable new solutions and ways of working together, providing a unique model for global collaboration and problem-solving.

The challenge was founded on two main principles: an interconnected world where many of the problems today can only be solved through collaborative efforts and the need to empower young people to make the world a better place.

Students will have the chance to work as part of an international team of like-minded peers in solving problems with the support of mentorsand resources to guide them along the way.

From August 2020 - February 2021, college students from across the globe will come together to solve some of the world's biggest problems!

Join the challenge and experience global collaboration first hand.

Utilize This Offer

Students from all around the world are invited to apply and join a team of 4 peers to form a Fishbowl Team, come up with an approach to solve an important global issue chosen from 5 focus areas (including Environmental Protection and Renewable Energy) and develop a business plan.

The winning team will receive up to US$50 thousand in prize money to develop their ideas further and attend the 2021 finals in Berlin, Germany (all expenses paid).

Undergraduate and graduate (Master’s) university students from all countries are eligible to apply.
