Bridging issues, building solutions.
BridgeBuilder™ invests in the building and repairing of unique bridges between people, organizations, issues, and beliefs to promote meaningful engagement, and sustainable, community-led change.
Over the past two years, the Challenges have sourced hundreds of radical new ways to address urgent global issues at the intersections of peace, prosperity, and planet. BridgeBuilder 2019 will elevate ideas that address urgent and emergent needs among people on move by considering:
How might we, as people on the move and neighbors, build bridges to a shared future of stability and promise?
Ideas this year will build on meaningful change already resulting from submissions in 2017 and 2018 - more than 1,300 ideas from social innovators in 185 countries.
