Samsung completes first round of Solve for Tomorrow

Son Thursday, amsung Electronics Nordics completed its first round of Solve for Tomorrow – an initiative where young people between the ages of 16 and 25 learn about tech, innovation and sustainability.

During the autumn, 14 young people from all over the Nordic region have had the opportunity to create positive societal changes.

Through unique interactive learning, designed by Hyper Island, young people have been given the opportunity to transform thoughts and ideas into solutions based on societal challenges. The winner received a prize of 5,000 euros and the opportunity for continued coaching.

This year’s winner is Lovisa Warg, 18 years old from Sweden. Her idea was to develop an app for people with autism, ADHD and ADD. The purpose of the app is to create a safe platform and an environment that forms the basis for community and where users can get help with everyday challenges. This is what Lovisa Warg herself says about her journey with Solve for Tomorrow:

“This trip has been incredible. I am so grateful and I look forward to living my dreams, ”says winner Lovisa Warg.

Solve for Tomorrow is about creating positive societal change with the help of technology and innovation. Unlike traditional education, the focus is instead on design thinking. That is, a practical and iterative method to be able to create innovative solutions to problems that are based on people’s needs in interaction with the outside world. The Nordic program is being developed in close collaboration with partner Hyper Island.

“It feels great to be able to look back on the first round of Solve for Tomorrow in the Nordics. The youth, our new changemakers, have shown an incredible commitment and an enormous willingness to learn, develop and create positive change. They have really shown that the future is in good hands. I am already looking forward to Solve for Tomorrow 2022 and that we at Samsung continue to gear up and contribute even more to increase young people’s interest in technology and innovation, ”says Alexander Grimsen, Corporate Citizenship Lead at Samsung Electronics Nordic.

Application to Solve for Tomorrow 2022 opens in January next year. All young people aged 16-25 can apply individually or in teams. It is completely free and requires no experience (apart from knowing English) and can be balanced alongside both work and school. The only requirement is that a challenge or description of an idea must be defined within the environment, gender equality, or health and well-being. The goal is the learning experience itself and not the competition. All participants are guaranteed a great fun and interactive experience and will leave Solve For Tomorrow with new skills in design thinking, many new friends and access to networks that can lead to future jobs.
