The 1440 Foundation has launched the 1440 Challenge which commits to a total of $75,000 to recognize up to three ideas, products, or solutions that best help non-experts learn, improve, and share through technology one or more of the following relationship skills: self-awareness, authenticity, trust, and empathy.
The submission idea should:
- Help people learn, practice, improve, and share one or more of the following four basic relationship skills: self-awareness, authenticity, trust, and empathy;
- Apply to one or more of the following areas: education, wellness, or the workplace;
- Mobilize authentic connections either inside individuals, between and among people, and/or within communities.
- Use technology (broadly defined as curricula, tools, apps, social media or other applications) to effectively reach a wide audience.
- Be easy to use so that non-experts (in technology) can have easy access.
Individuals 18 years or older, teams of individuals 18 years or older, and U.S. public charities are eligible to apply. Applicants may apply more than once for distinctly different ideas.
