Global Challenges Connect (GCConnect)


Accelerating progress in addressing Global Challenges by connecting problem solvers with community-scale problems.


  1. Complement existing CGC and CGE networks of solution seekers.
  2. Create a purpose-built platform that enables easy access to community-scale problems.
  3. Develop a framework to dissect and articulate gathered problems to address and appeal to diverse communities of experts.
  4. Connect processed community-scale problems with those who have the interest and capacity to develop solutions.
