One Young World Lead2030 Challenge for SDG 4

Education is the cornerstone of sustainable development, as it empowers and uplifts individuals, nations, and society. However, millions of people across the globe are unable to reach their full potential due to a lack of educational opportunities. Investing in education and skills is the key to unlocking opportunities for all and creating better futures.


The challenges of tomorrow will require new skills from our future innovators, entrepreneurs, and leaders. Unfortunately, 800 million young people around the world are projected to lack even the basic skills needed to succeed in the workforce by 2030. Educational inequality was a significant global challenge before COVID-19, but the pandemic has further widened the learning gap.


At Deloitte, we are committed to expanding opportunities for 100 million people by 2030 by developing job skills, improving educational outcomes, and providing opportunities for individuals from underrepresented and marginalized groups worldwide. In line with this ambition, Deloitte is proud to support the Lead2030 Challenge for SDG4 for the fifth year. Together, we can accelerate innovative youth-led solutions to achieve inclusive, equitable, and quality education for all.

The One Young World Lead2030 Challenge, sponsored by Deloitte, is open to young entrepreneurs aged 18-30 who have readily available or are piloted, implemented, or scaled solutions aligned with SDG4. The winning solution will receive a US$50,000 grant from Deloitte, 12 months of mentorship from a team of Deloitte professionals and partners, and sponsorship to participate in the One Young World Summit 2024. The solution must have a positive social impact, and be measurable, financially viable, and scalable.

The application deadline for the One Young World Lead2030 Challenge is March 1, 2024. If you are interested and eligible, visit the One Young World website to apply. Join us in accelerating innovative solutions for inclusive, equitable, and quality education for all.
