Future Anything is excited to announce that the Sydney Big Ideas Challenge 2022 is on 22 July 2022 – and you’re invited!

During this fast-paced day of listening, learning, and doing, Year 8 students will hear from inspiring local changemakers, as well as explicitly developing their entrepreneurial thinking and human-centered design skills.

The day will culminate in young people pitching their own innovative solution to a real-world issue that matters to them.

WHEN: Friday 22 July 2022

WHERE: Loreto Kirribilli, 85 Carabella St, Kirribilli NSW 2061, Australia

COST: Free. Up to 20 free tickets are available to Year 8 students from invited schools. Tickets will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, but consideration will be given to ensure there is a mix of schools attending.

WHO: The event is designed for Year 8 students. We are seeking a broad mix of students, both in capability and talents, who would benefit from exploring entrepreneurial skills in a motivating and supportive setting.

The Sydney Big Ideas Youth Challenge 2022 is supported by Loreto Kirribilli.
