Ideas Change Lives International Challenge 2018 @ British Council [Prizes worth Rs. 38 Lakh]: Submit by Nov 23: Expired

About the Challenge

The British Council, the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities, is looking for organisations, groups, or talented individuals, to work with them on creating hyper-innovative digital solutions.

This challenge gives you a genuine chance to change the world and improve the lives of some of the world’s most disadvantaged people. You should have a vision for how your idea could improve the lives of hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people.


Your digital solution must help the world address one, or more, of these six SDGs:

  • Quality education
  • Gender equality
  • Decent work and economic growth
  • Reduced inequalities
  • Sustainable cities and communities
  • Peace, justice and strong institutions

The challenge is open to individuals and companies of any size based anywhere in the world.


The two winning entries will receive prizes of £20,000 each.

In addition, each winner will have the chance to work collaboratively with the British Council’s Digital, Partnerships and Innovation team to develop a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) based on their idea.
