Are you between the ages of 14 and 25 and currently residing in Northern Ireland? Do you have an idea for a community project or business that aligns with one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals? If so, keep reading. Unloc Online is partnering with One Young World to offer 10 Micro Grants worth £1000 each to young individuals in Northern Ireland who wish to test or develop their own business or community project that contributes to the advancement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
The recipients of Seed2030 will come together in Belfast in early 2024 for a 2-day immersive Leadership Development Bootcamp. This bootcamp aims to help participants enhance their leadership skills and make progress in their respective projects, campaigns, or ventures.
Following the bootcamp, each grantee will be paired with a mentor from the One Young World ambassador community. These mentors will provide support to the grantees for a period of 6 months as they launch their projects. Throughout the project, the young individuals will also receive ongoing assistance and guidance from Unloc staff.
In addition to this, a select group of recipients will have the opportunity to attend the One Young World Summit in Montreal in September 2024. They will also have the chance to apply for Lead2030, further expanding their leadership journey.
