Teach the Future is proud to announce the winners in the inaugural SOIF Next Generation Foresight Practitioners – Young Voices Award competition. Curious, innovative, and empathetic youngsters between 12-17-years old were invited to apply by submitting a short video and essay about their community-based projects, based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
The winners of the 2021 NGFP-Young Voices award are Alice from Brazil and Ruhan from Finland and they win the $1,000 prize. Passionate about education, music, theatre, and debate. They actively participate in innovative educational projects and activism. Both are co-founders of the international debate championship MUNDO, an international online debate championship for youth, focusing on solutions to contemporary global challenges.
We have three Runner-up Awardees who receive $500 each. They are Amna from Pakistan, Arjun and teammate Om from India, and Daniele, Maria and Spiros from Singapore.
We know that many young people are doing great things to create a better world and future and we recognise and celebrate their efforts. There are many young people around the world showing tremendous insight into the world around them, and the challenges faced by their communities. They are taking action and leading the way to change and create a more sustainable world.
We look forward to working with all our applicants and winners and helping them to create the change they envision in the world.
