Common Purpose is 30

What will your generation’s legacy be?

Bangladesh100

In 2071, Bangladesh will be 100 years old – how will you shape your country’s future? 

Bangladesh100 convenes a diverse group of leaders, aged 18-25, from across Bangladesh to address the question: "What will the legacy of our generation be?” Because after all, you are the generation who will shape Bangladesh when it reaches 100.

Bangladesh100 is part of Legacy; a global campaign by Common Purpose, which invests in young people across the world so they can become a connected generation of leaders with a clear vision for what their legacy will be.

Why take part?

Bangladesh100 is your opportunity to come together as a generation and think through what your generation’s legacy will be. As part of a highly diverse group of peers, you will tackle real social challenges facing Bangladesh and develop Cultural Intelligence in the process – the ability to cross divides and thrive in multiple cultures.


What happens on Bangladesh100?

You’ll join a group of young people in Bangladesh to tackle a pressing challenge your city/country faces. This year’s challenge is: How can we encourage Dhaka to maximize its use of renewable materials and energy sources, to help move the city towards becoming a zero waste environment?

You’ll come together online to investigate issues, collaborate, hold difficult conversations and work up ideas. You’ll test, refine and either implement your ideas or present them to leaders in Bangladesh.

Bangladesh100 is intergenerational, giving you the opportunity to work with 30-50 established leaders from across city/country, who act as group advisors, speakers and immersion hosts. The established leaders benefit from seeing the world through your eyes – the next generation.
