Do you have a new, not-yet-produced idea that has the potential to positively impact the future of humankind?

The projects should introduce novel ways of looking at social problems and deliver simple but effective ways to solve them. The submissions should include 3-minute video documentation, a concept description, and a production plan. The deadline for submissions is March 6, 2015.
