You had Ideathon questions. We hosted an info session.

Ideathon registration closes on 29 January!

This March, three teams will win $25,000 to implement their winning idea about volunteering for the environment. The “Volunteering for Sustainability” Virtual Ideathon, 4–6 March 2024, is a partnership between IAVE and Emirates Foundation, the UAE Ministry of Climate Change & Environment, and Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi, sponsored by General Motors.

Here are a few takeaways from the info session we held this week: 

  1. Each team is limited to three team members and a coach. Solo participants are not eligible.
  2. Corporate teams are not eligible. But corporate employees are welcome to join nonprofit teams as private citizens.
  3. Camila Colmenares from Dividendo Voluntario para la Comunidad in Venezuela said that just being a finalist in the last Ideathon gave her team a platform and access to partnerships that benefitted the whole organization.
