How Do You Know When an Idea is a Good Idea?

This Saturday, March 11, teens around the world will complete their quest in creating a teen-friendly website as a tool to improve the well-being of teens in their community. Statistics have shown that the state of mental health and physical health for teens is concerning worldwide. While healthcare experts and counseling professionals continue to voice their concerns and opinions, we wonder what the teens themselves think should be done?

With the power of the internet and technology, 14 teams of teens around the world got together in the past month to produce a tool that is creative, sustainable and equitable. Helping us decide which idea is the best idea are our international education panelists. Meanwhile, you will get to vote for your favorite creation between March 12 - 17. Let's empower the students to be the person they want to be. After all, happiness comes from within.
