Several Chatham High School students from the Research Club have been named finalists in the 3rd Annual Global Ideas for Action Youth Competition. The CHS team is one of only six finalist teams in the competition, which included hundreds of registrants and competing teams from twenty-two countries across five continents.
The CHS team is comprised of current students Indira Roy, Stephen Ratner, and Emily Lamb, and 2017 CHS graduates Nishita Sinha, Meghan Maguire, and Zoe Heard.
This competition, with the support of the World Bank Institute, is the platform for young people from around the world to present their ideas for financing and implementing the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
The CHS team will present their proposal, "Strengthening Domestic Industry and Regulating the International Clothes Donation Process to Promote Global Economy and Culture."
The Ideas for Action Organization aims to “provide students and young professionals from around the world with a unique opportunity to help shape the international development agenda and to take an active role in changing the world.” It is “a joint program of the World Bank Group and the Zicklin Center for Business Ethics Research at the Wharton School.”
