Meet the Fishbowl team working together  from  8 different cities to make the challenge happen. 

We created the Fishbowl Challenge because we are passionate about 2 things - bringing the world closer together by connecting young people around the world, and helping them launch their ideas for changing the world for the better. 

 

We believe the future of our world is a global one, with people of different backgrounds, cultures, and geographies rallying together to solve problems and take advantage of opportunities.

 

We want to provide participants with a safe space to experience global collaboration, launch something new they believe in,  and provide them with feedback and support to grow along the way.

The Fishbowl Team

The Fishbowl Project Team emerged from the very first Fishbowl Challenge that we set for ourselves. We came together from different parts of the world and varying backgrounds to bring this idea to life.
