Ideasforward wants to give young creative people from around the world the opportunity to express their views of the future of societies through their innovative and visionary proposals. We are an experimental platform seeking progressive ideas that reflect on emerging themes. The eco-design, sustainable architecture, new materials, concepts, and technologies are compelling issues in the societies of the future, and the involvement of the whole community is imperative. In an era of globalization where the technological revolution dominated communication, there is the need to rethink the cities and how Man can relate in a global World as well as rethink the economic, social and cultural patterns of contemporary societies. The young creatives and thinkers are a precious commodity that we value a lot. We want to give them a voice.


A place where the time limit is used to stimulate your creativity. This competition aims to present answers in 24h to social problems, visionary ideas, humanitarian causes and sociologic problems of the contemporary societies. Commitment, perseverance, inspiration and hard work are all the necessary bases to develop a proposal that meets the premises that will be released regularly in the brief of the competition.

We challenge you to prove your talent in 24 hours!

There is a period of registration, when it ends, starts the 24H competition! You have 24H to develop a proposal that responds to the program contained on the brief that will only be available on the same day the competition starts.
