Young Innovators is an educational program aimed at high school students between the ages of 12 and 18. Its transformative potential lies in the fact that it helps them adopt a more holistic and inclusive vision of reality. Thanks to this approach, young people are able to understand what is behind the complex challenges of climate change, while discovering opportunities for improvement and learning to transform them into real opportunities and solutions for a more sustainable future.

To do this, the participants in the program will have to solve real challenges that come directly from their community, from their local ecosystem. These challenges can cover a wide variety of topics: responsible production and consumption, the circular economy, sustainable mobility; how to build more resilient cities or the challenge of sustainable food. By addressing these challenges in the classroom, students develop new skills while deepening their learning and increasing their chances to face an uncertain future.

The Young Innovators is divided into 3 programs:

  1. School Innovators: This educational program aims to promote the future skills necessary for students between the ages of 12 and 18 to be active citizens who are committed to their society. To achieve this, teachers and students are empowered with easy-to-use tools, deep methodological frameworks, and real-life experiences.
  2. Young Climathon:Young Climathon is a community event that is celebrated during the same day, the students who prepared the presentation of their project expose in front of the international jury of Circular Influence (the projects pitching can be exposed virtual or presencially in English or Spanish as you like). The first 3 winners and the winner chosen by public vote win prizes! In addition, every participant receives a certificate of participation.
  3. Young Changemakers:A selection of teams participating in the program and wanting to become agents of change will have the opportunity to develop the prototype of their solutions with the support of experts and other local agents. The students will receive the necessary accompaniment that will allow them to delve into the impact that their projects of innovative solutions against climate change can have on their environment and on society.

Projects that reach the Young Changemakers stage and their members are of legal age, can apply to Climatelaunchpad 2023 and transform the project into a business.

Founded in 2020, Circular Influence® is a non-profit organization funded by individual and institutional donations. Circular Influence seeks to help the world accelerate the transition to a circular economy with NET-ZERO emissions based on systems thinking. Our actions are designed to achieve positive global sustainable impact as quickly, safely and equitably as possible.

Circular Influence is hosting the program for Argentina, Uruguay and Peru. We have been working together with Young Innovators and Climate-KIC to train teachers and educators since 2021.We are partners and members of the EIT Climate-KIC, European Institute of Innovation & Technology, co-funded by the European Union, and with their support we identify and help to develop innovative ideas that are capable to mitigate the global warming and fight climate change.

The following topics were based on projects last year:

  • Agriculture - uses and usufructs of agriculture.
  • Sustainable mobility: renewable energies, electric vehicles, sustainable mobility infrastructure.
