3M in partnership with Confederation of Indian Industry, brings the “Young Innovators Challenge Awards 2016” for India’s youth. This is an annual online competition to identify, encourage and recognise the ability of young people to create new solutions to challenges of sustainability. The Challenge is searching for disruptive innovations for a “Clean, Safe and Sustainable India”. These ideas could be in the areas of renewal energy, air quality, access and quality of water, building efficiency, safe and secure urbanization (including smart city innovations, waste management, biodiversity), livelihood, health care and education, access to resources and even housing & infrastructure. 3M is not only looking at products or technology as solutions but also practices and initiatives that will be responsible for generating a shift in people’s thinking to drive change for good eventually. Through this Challenge, 3M seeks to demonstrate how contribution from youth can pace up the country’s bright future.
In line with the Challenge’s vision of contributing to the country’s progress and sustainability, winning entries are expected to:
The Challenge is open to submissions from anywhere in India, but the participating innovations, ideas and initiatives must specifically apply to Indian context.
Application can be done online only.
Innovation: The best entries will demonstrate a creative approach to a social challenge and a viable solution that can be prototyped. Such innovation must be disruptive and may be comprised of new products or practices, or new applications, or hybrid combinations of existing tools. The initiative(s) does not have to involve inventing something entirely new, but entries should describe how ideas are original.
