Through its Build a World of Play Challenge, it is looking for solutions designed to meaningfully impact the wellbeing and holistic development of young children (from birth to age six) in a sustainable way. As well as transforming early childhood experiences ideas should address global social issues that impact young children’s lives.

Ideas, it says, must be ‘impactful, feasible, community-centred, and sustainable’, and organisations worldwide can apply.
