What are the goals for heroes?
Heroes goals are to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which are proposed by the United Nations. The SDGs are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. The Goals interconnect and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve each Goal and target by 2030.
Can I participate if I'm not in active within one of the SDGs?
Sure, get a general ticket, and have some fun with the heroes who are aiming to achieve SDGs.
Can I pitch something I’ve already started on working?
No, but well researched and vetted ideas are always welcome.
What if my idea isn’t selected?
Join another team, remember, it’s not about the idea.
Can I use any pitch props, slides, etc when pitching?
Props are ok, but slides are not. Remember you only have one minute to pitch!
