Programme Overview

The WildHearts Schools Programme is a vital stage in our mission.  

In collaboration with our Corporate Partners, we deliver a unique, engaging, and transformational education programme for school students. We are committed to empowering the next generation, through a combination of employability training, sustainability workshops, and mental health support.

These learnings are showcased via two global events; The Micro-Tyco Innovate Competition and The WildHearts Global Youth Summit during COP.  

All programmes are delivered free for young people, as a result of WildHearts Corporate Partners. 

EDUCATION

We provide free world-class education, levelling the playing field, ensuring inclusive and equal opportunities. 

EMPLOYABILITY

We raise the aspirations of young people by providing employability training alongside leading employers.

MENTAL HEALTH

We have partnered with leading mental health experts to make their expertise more widely available to young people.

WildHearts Global Youth Summit during COP

During COP26, WildHearts hosted the inaugural WildHearts Global Youth Summit – The World’s Largest Youth-led Sustainability Summit, connecting over 35,000 young people across 5 continents. Following this success, we committed to repeating the event every year, bringing together our global network of empowered young people to learn, collaborate and innovate to create a more sustainable future.

The summit is designed to provide engaging activities for every age group, enabling young people to collaborate with world leading brands. By taking part, participants develop the skills and behaviours that can empower them to become the responsible leaders of the future. This year’s summit was our largest to-date, with over 60,000 student engagements.

Micro-Tyco Competition

Micro-Tyco is a leading global entrepreneurship competition which challenges young people to work together and develop innovative solutions to address The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

By working in collaboration with our corporate partners, young people are provided with inspiration, knowledge, and networks. The inspiration to build their idea, the knowledge to guide it, and the networks to amplify it. The experience of participating helps to develop an innovative, entrepreneurial mindset within our young people, regardless of their background.

Top performing teams are invited to pitch their ideas to a global judging panel, where they receive expert feedback from leading global brands. The winning teams work closely with WildHearts Corporate Partners to help bring their idea to life.
