In cooperation with

CHALLENGE FOR YOUNG CHANGEMAKERS

The #BEAPIRATE CHALLENGE 2020 in cooperation with MegaCard by UniCredit Bank Austria brought together more than 800 young changemakers between 14 and 19 from 30+ countries.

During the 3-week online journey, these young talents worked on developing solutions for a better future with support from international mentors.

While the first series of the #BEAPIRATE CHALLENGE has come to an end, it is just the start of a journey for the 61 teams of incredible young changemakers! The Moonshot Pirates crew is excited to support their work and we’re proud of every single person who chose to join the challenge and take action for the future they want.

MEET THE WINNERS

ROUND OF APPLAUSE! Congratulations to the team TerraShift with their project RevGro for the historic moment of winning the first-ever #BEAPIRATE CHALLENGE!

This all-girls team of budding engineers from the UK is on its mission to eradicate agricultural poverty! During the 4 weeks of the #beapirate challenge, they ignited the idea of a regenerative farming revolution that will improve soil health and thus help farmers to produce higher crop yields that will offer a boost to the economies of less developed countries.

This was just the beginning for these 4 talented girls. We are looking forward to seeing you taking RevGro to another level!
