Skill UP Winners

by C:F Team on 10th June, 2013 at 4:49 PM CEST


Today, we all stand at many crossroads. While there are more young people on the planet than ever before, youth unemployment is double than that of the adult population. Challenge:Future together with Triglav Insurance Group understood the importance to stimulate non-formal education and offer learning experiences for personal and professional development of youth - organized by YOUth! We launched Skill UP quick challenge and together with 600 young people around the world, we did it! We developed 40 youth events in 40 different countries, we hosted, educated and empowered more than 38,000 young people and we defined the top 10 most crucial youth skills and competencies needed in your local area. Congratulations to all of you, who took this challenge with full devotion and careful planning! All your solutions showed great innovative potential, unique combinations of art, sports, business skills, healthy lifestyles, environmental challenges and social awareness.

And the day has come to announce the selection of 4 winners who will be the next Challenge:Future Summit 2013 participants! The expert judges needed several evaluation phases in order to make the most objective selection. “We were amazed by the passion and strong commitment of youth, by the fact that they organized events in their local areas and gathered thousands of young people. They managed to organize entrepreneurship evening classes or startup festival, combined sports and well being with business skills and social awareness. Very innovative, indeed!” one of the judges commented.

“This competition made me aware of some crucial youth needs that I have never been able to read in any report or research before. It gave me another perspective on the whole youth movement and informal education. Youth knows best, really good solutions,” another judge added.

 Having in mind all grading and feedback, the winners of Skill UP Competition are:

What a rollercoaster ride with CF! 4th place again, but now it pays off! I cannot really imagine how my humble event of few participants could have competed against amazing events that included hundreds. I had slowly scrolled down this page and one by one, my name wasn't there. It was such a surprise that I was the last one! 4 may be my lucky number afterall!

Thank you very much!
