One Young World’s Lead2030 Challenge is looking for health promotion ideas and projects to reduce risk behaviours in young people, such as smoking tobacco, misuse of alcohol, the impact of air pollution, lack of physical exercise and poor diet. They want to support early innovation and will look in particular for projects that explore challenges and opportunities, generate ideas, develop and test ideas or make a business case. Through this project, they aim to generate case studies and other evidence of promising approaches and to uncover opportunities for future collaboration and investment.
