Resolution’s first Social Venture Challenge partner is Harvard’s WorldMUN Conference, and every year since 2009 WorldMUN has hosted a Resolution Social Venture Challenge. WorldMUN is a one-of-a-kind intellectual and social conference that brings together an extraordinary assortment of young minds from around the globe to engage in cultural exchange.
IT Empowerment was conceived by Resolution Fellows Nick Fiore and Alex Merkovic-Orenstein as a means of providing low-cost IT solutions to primary schools. For their pilot project, they partnered with the Bukomero Primary School and the Marist Brothers of Byimana to outfit a computer lab that provides free IT training to hundreds of students.
The Resolution Project ran our fourth annual Social Venture Challenge at the Clinton Global Initiative University 2016 meeting, which took place from April 1-3, 2016 at the University of California, Berkeley in the San Francisco Bay Area.
