UNIDO’s 50th Anniversary Time Capsule Competition is open to creative young people around the world (born between 1991 and 1998), who are interested in addressing the issue of sustainability for a more inclusive future.

The competition is organized by UNIDO, the UN specialized agency that promotes industrial development for poverty reduction, inclusive globalization and environmental sustainability, together with AIESEC, the global platform for young people to explore and develop their leadership potential.
