Teams gather to hear from leading thinkers, who tackle some of our world's toughest issues. These leaders propose challenges to the teams,
asking them to create innovative solutions.
I challenge you, the students of Washington DC, to leverage technology and design a platform to engage with youth from around the world. This platform should be scalable and convince high school students, and society at large, that engaging with people from different cultures should be the norm.
I challenge you to unleash peace to counter the culture of violence present in all of our communities. By working with unlikely allies to identify a place of common hurt and disconnection, design a project that addresses it with creativity, humor, and courage.
By focusing on the appetites of your generation, I challenge you to come up with an irresistible food concept that features all natural fruits, vegetables and sustainable meats and fish.
