What exactly is the Global Ideathon?

AFS Global Ideathon (September 24-26, 2021) is a 48-hour digital event (a marathon for ideas = ideathon) organized by AFS volunteers for everyone around the world who identifies with our mission. Together we can bring forward solutions to help our organization work towards our mission to make the world a more just and peaceful world. This year’s theme is “How can we create sustainable solutions for a more just and peaceful world?”
