ABOUT

CHASING GENIUS

 

ONE IDEA CAN CHANGE THE WORLD. LET IT BE YOURS.

At National Geographic, we believe transformational ideas can come from anywhere. From anyone. That’s why we created CHASING GENIUS, a digital community designed to inspire, ignite, and enable the genius inside each of us. Explore your curiosities, share your stories, and turn your ideas into catalysts for change in the world.

In the inaugural challenge, the CHASING GENIUS community shared thousands of game-changing ideas around the issues of global health, world hunger, and environmental sustainability. On September 18, 2017, we announced our four winners — who each received $25,000 to take their idea to the next level.

Now, the CHASING GENIUS: UNLIMITED INNOVATION challenge is designed to reimagine the network of the future through breakthrough ideas and innovative solutions that will transform our world. Technology is the next great frontier and we want to explore it with you. Ideas are evaluated on the following criteria: innovation, creativity, viability, and inspiration. Members of the CHASING GENIUS Council help choose finalists, and you’ll have the chance to vote and help us choose the winning entry, who will receive $25,000 to further their idea.

Share your sparks of genius with us, and review, share and comment on the ideas that inspire you. Be sure to tap into the creative genius of your friends and family and encourage them to participate, too. Together, we can leverage the power of connectivity to imagine a better world.
 
Genius lives in all of us. Unleash yours.
