When the UN brought out the Sustainable Development Goals in 2016, we saw these goals as a to-do list for the world - one with tasks we can no longer drag away. It seems to us that the only way to meet the goals in 2030 is through collaboration and action.
Unfortunately, up until now there has not been enough progress and not everyone seems to know the SDG’s. Moreover, young people mostly get excluded from changing the world whilst they themselves are the future.
Therefore, Uitgespeeld connects high school students from Amsterdam with companies to work on some of the world's most pressing issues of today.
We believe that engaging the fresh, bright and creative minds of young people can change the world. Therefore we think the people of tomorrow should be challenged to tackle the issues we are facing today.
Uitgespeeld opens the gates to the adult world and thereby gives young people the opportunity and freedom to make a difference. At the same time, we offer companies a chance to learn from and benefit from the creative and fresh ideas that youngsters have.
This ensures a win-win-WIN:
A meaningful learning experience for the students
Bright and smart solutions for companies
And when combined this leads to a more sustainable world.
