CHALLENGE FOR YOUNG CHANGEMAKERS

The #BEAPIRATE CHALLENGE 2021 in cooperation with Talent Garden brought together 800 young changemakers between 14 and 19 from 80+ countries.

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

While the #BEAPIRATE CHALLENGE 2021 has come to an end, it is just the start of a journey for the 65 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

Congratulations to Project Firefly for winning the #BEAPIRATE CHALLENGE 2021!

The three young women, Jesse Pound, Soliana Fikru, and Valkyrie Holmes, want to improve the fight against wildfires with vortex cannons and drones, Vortex cannons emit pressure waves that manipulate air molecules, knocking out the sustaining factor of all fires. Through the use of fluid dynamics, drones can stop the fire from spreading and damaging outside areas.

We are looking forward to seeing these 3 talented girls taking Project Firefly to another level and revolutionizing the fight against wildfires.

WHAT A SHOWS!

Rewatch the FINAL PITCHING, where our 7 finalists presented their ideas for a better future. They all have proven that they have what it takes to create a more prosperous and inclusive world for themselves and others!

MEET THE FINALISTS
