Welcome to Medellín Challenge

Within the framework of the 55 years of the San José de Las Vegas Corporation, which will be celebrated 2023, we will hold the Medellín Challenge. This event, aims to connect students from local, national and international institutions through the resolution of real challenges that impact different communities.

Why Medellín Challenge?

Medellín: a city that opens its doors to the world. We invite you to get to know our city and to work collaboratively to solve real challenges in our community. We believe in the power of young people’s ideas and in their leadership to make them a reality. Come, let’s learn together and be part of the change!

We have defined the SDGs that allow us to pose three challenges:

Reto 1 MDE Challenge

How to generate sustainable alternatives that allow equitable access to public services in commune 14 in the city of Medellín.

Reto 2 MDE Challenge

How to generate strategies or tools that promote food sovereignty in commune 13 in the city of Medellín.

Reto 3 MDE challenge

What strategies or tools can be implemented to reduce the school dropout rate of children from strata 1 and 2 in commune 4 in the city of Medellín?

How are we doing it?

We are carring out the event with the STEAM+H approach through the Design for change methodology, since it will allow us to guide the solution of challenges associated with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in a collaborative way. Here, the answer, is not in charge of one, we all build it!

STEAM+H is a new way of learning that seeks to form global citizens that contribute to the solution of a sustainable world. Science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics and humanities are a route to achieve this purpose.

Design for Change is an active methodology derived from Design Thinking whose purpose, through the steps: feel, imagine, do and share, is to empower young people to lead initiatives that solve community problems and, in turn, develop global skills such as empathy, collaborative work, communication and critical thinking.
