The world’s youth-led innovation lab for the sustainable Development Goals 2030 Camp In New York.

Deadline: January 15th 2020. (EARLY BIRD)

From January 16th, 2020 to March 15th, 2020. (General registration)

Camp date: September 14 - 19, 2020 | New York, USA

Camp 2030 is the ultimate “un-conference,” empowering YOU to transform the world.

Camp 2030 is a 6-day “innovation lab” for the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. We energize you to take action to create a new solution to one of the most critical issues facing our world and elevate your voice to help them take flight.

For the first time, we are engaging the next generation to become the LEADING GENERATION to create positive, lasting social impact.

The annual Camp 2030 Summit brings together the most talented young leaders from every corner of the globe. Campers formulate solutions to global challenges, meet and make lasting connections with peers from almost every industry, sector and country, engage with global leaders and talent who actively work toward the SDGs, and make memories that will last a lifetime.

During the Summit, Campers work in teams to ideate, debate, and formulate solutions to the critical issues the world faces. The key idea behind the Theory of Change of Camp 2030 is that every single participant brings back their learnings, reflections, and innovation skills and becomes a positive changemaker in their local community. Camp 2030 enables Campers to develop and accelerate new ideas and solutions, if not immediately after Camp 2030, but in the years to come, together with others in their community.

What Camp 2030 represents is a massive learning journey for participants, facilitators, and experts involved. By working together with others in such a diverse and dynamic context, by living, sleeping, eating, and singing together, and learning through a tried and tested innovation process, Camp 2030 is, at its core, an experiential education tool seeking to motivate, create hope, and develop the skills of its campers, counsellors, and talent.



Tucked away in a secluded and woodsy corner of Upstate New York (just 4 hours from New York City) you’ll find Camp Echo Lake, a glorious 135 acres of all the best memories you have from summer camp, ropes courses, archery, hiking, canoeing, swimming, and more.


They call Camp 2030 the ultimate “un-conference” experience. Instead of listening, you’re working. Instead of networking, you’re building authentic relationships.

Your 6 days at Camp 2030 are all about building - building relationships, building solutions, building teams, building skills, and building your networks.


During Camp, you will work in teams to develop solutions to the most critical challenges that the world faces. Using our proven innovation process alongside the support of our Partners, each Team will leave the Summit with an Action Plan for how they will then implement their solutions. For our winning teams, we provide support to help you bring your solutions to life.
