Our Organization

Challenge 18 players

Problem – Humanity is experiencing a global crisis and most people are unaware of the conditions of our world.

Need – A program to aid individuals’ interests, understanding, and involvement in relation to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) encouraging a sense of global citizenship.

Solution – Meet Challenge 18! An informal education and social platform, inspired by the UN’s SDGs, that was designed to create a positive social change by nurturing a sense of global citizenship and fostering connections between international communities.

Join Us

Why Challenge 18?

The problem is that there is a global crisis for all of humanity and it is not yet well assimilated into the education system. The need is in a training program to raise the level of understanding, interest and involvement of students in matters relate to the SDG's and bring universal values back to fashion.

The solution – Challenge 18 is the most important sustainability and leadership games tournament in the world, in which clubs from all over the world collaborate in achieving the SDG’s. My message to you – prepare your students for a future that is already here.
