Global Challenge

Global Challenge

Wageningen Youth Institute invites high school students throughout Europe to participate in the Global Challenge of the World Food Prize Foundation. To participate, students write a short essay about a global challenge of their own interest.

Kick-off workshops

To prepare and support students in writing the Global Challenge essay, we offer kick-off workshops by University students of WUR in November and December. The students will offer mini lectures and an explanation on how to write the Global Challenge essay. After the workshops the University students will be available for questions and support up until the date of the Wageningen Youth Institutes.

After handing in the Global Challenge report the high school students will interact in online round table sessions with fellow students and experts, such as World Food Prize laureates and University professors, at Wageningen Youth Institute on 3 March. At this event students will be selected to join the Global Youth Institute in October 2021 in Des Moines, US. At the expense of the Wageningen Youth Institute and the World Food Prize Foundation.
