Edtech venture GlobalShala has announced the launch of its “Superhero U” competition to accelerate awareness on United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
It is open to 2 categories- Junior (up to 18 years) and Senior (18 years- 25 years) individual or group-led. Candidates can submit stories, illustrations, photo collages, and even movies that demonstrate how their Superhero use their superpowers to win the day. The winners will be awarded prize money worth $90,000 which includes scholarships, internship opportunities, gift cards, and electronic gadgets.
In an industry first, the Superhero U competition aims to tackle the 5 P’s of Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) that is People, Prosperity, Planet, Partnerships, and Peace. Hence, the Superhero created should address all these goals collectively and promote prosperity while protecting the planet, the theme of the competition which is inspired by the UN’s mission.
Talking about the competition, Anushika Jain, Founder & CEO, GlobalShala said “As per the SDG Index 2020, countries across Europe like Sweden, Denmark, Finland, France and Germany have set the benchmark for adept sustainability practices, India still falls back at rank 117. This needs to be improved upon immensely and therefore more events, programmes and contests need to be introduced across Asia Pacific countries to inculcate awareness about SDGs for the betterment of our society. We at GlobalShala have taken upon this challenge through an out-of-the-box approach with our “Superhero U” competition to add an element of intrigue and enthusiasm for individuals to take up the challenge.”
