The Next 100 ReDefiners program brings together selected students from diverse fields including humanities, social sciences, engineering, computing science, art and the natural sciences. The students form small international teams and identify one issue that they perceive to be the paramount global challenge for our future. Working collaboratively, teams incorporate innovative ideas from their respective fields and propose a way to address this challenge. Up to ten teams will be invited to Prague for a five day-long workshop, during which time they finalize their proposals. The top teams, as selected by a panel of experts, will be invited to present their ideas at the Next 100 Symposium.
