The Concord Coalition has teamed up with Mindsumo, a leading crowdsourcing platform, to find new and creative ways to engage younger generations on the problem of a growing national debt and help fellow young leaders better relate to the fiscal challenges of today and tomorrow.
The nation is facing a large and growing national debt, increasing budget deficits and the crowding out of important investments in the federal budget. As demographics continue to shift while the baby boom generation retires, younger generations like Generation X, Z and Millennials will need to step up and engage elected leaders on these important issues.
Our MindSumo challenge is designed for all college students and young professionals to participate. Submissions to the challenge will be judged on specific criteria, like how creative, how practical and how replicable plans would be. Top-notch ideas and submissions could even walk away with cash prizes.
If you have an idea, check out the challenge and submit your plan today. When you do, share that you participated on social media by tagging Concord on Facebook, Twitter or Instragram and use #OneNationOneDebt.
