A digital challenge is an international online contest that engages the youth from all over the world to work and compete in heterogeneous teams during a month-long virtual marathon.
Starting from a central theme, participants are asked to face specific global challenges with new ideas and project proposals. Their aim is that of looking for and designing new solutions, models, processes, or innovative services.
The teams can refer to a team of mentors throughout the duration of the challenge. Furthermore, the contest sees the participation of institutional representatives, leading figures and experts which will offer all participants their knowledge, skills, and experiences with the aim of supporting all teams in the development of their projects and final products.
The teams finally pitch their creative solutions through a virtual and comprehensive presentation in front of a jury of experts. A selected number of teams are qualified as finalists and the winning ones are then announced and awarded a price.
