After finishing program-19 to tackle general problems during covid-19, we have partnered up with Plan International Norway to create a program focused on helping children, especially girls. All countries that Plan International operates in can apply. Read more and apply before May 12 is over!
Check program-19
Our response to Covid-19 started by launching a new program March 15th. 7 days later the program had started after 850 applicants, 90 mentors and a dozen partners had been gone through to select 11 solutions / prototypes and 19 ideas.

YSI Locals and regional
Young Sustainable Impact is also running in Southeast Asia (based in Singapore), Bangladesh (based in Dhaka), and in China (based in Shanghai).

To Change the World
TO CHANGE THE WORLD is a documentary that explores the motivations of youths that participated in the 2018 YSI (Young Sustainable Impact) innovation program. A diverse cast of different cultures, skills and drives - these youths are set to change the world together.
We believe innovation and entrepreneurship can solve most of the global challenges, that youth are the driving force, and in collaboration with the experienced and established - it can be done!
