Who Are the Big Thinkers?

In three days, together we will decide who among the Fall 2022 Buddies Without Borders Online Forum - Zero Hunger Zero Waste competition participants have the best ideas to solve this global challenge that is both senseless and serious. After all, according to the United Nations, there is more than enough food to feed everyone on earth but 1 in 3 of us are going to bed hungry tonight.

The students' proposals will be judged based on their creativity, sustainability and equality. You are invited to vote for your favorite idea in the People's Choice Category (voting closes on Friday, Dec 16) The Forum Participants themselves will elect the Best Representative. The Team Coaches will nominate the kind of leaders we want to see in the Pioneer Award category to recieve the BWB Clubs scholarships to lead Local Actions.

The Best Team will be chosen by our seven esteemed panelists. Please join us in thanking the following individuals who are big thinkers themselves, guiding our future generations to create a better world in their profession everyday from around the world.
