Solve for Tomorrow - what exactly is it about?

The Solve for Tomorrow program was created so that young people could face the challenges of the modern world by creating projects that will help solve their biggest problems. Young people pointed out three most important issues - taking care of the mental condition of their generation, supporting the weak and protecting the environment.

Teams that have progressed to the next stage will be supported by mentorship from Solve for Tomorrow ambassadors. It is a group of experts specializing in various fields of knowledge necessary to implement projects. Participants will also take part in Design Thinking workshops and sessions with Samsung volunteers.
