The Power of Solutions

Why reinvent the wheel? Solutions exist to many of the world's most pressing conservation challenges. Solution Search holds prize competitions to find them so you don't have to.

Phase 1. Launch

Solution Search prepares to launch a competition and address another critical conservation challenge. The contest assembles partners, judges and other key stakeholders as it nears entry opening.

Phase 2. Enter

Organizations enter a contest showcasing their solution to the given challenge. Entrants provide critical information about their proven successes and how that approach has impacted environmental, social and economic outcomes.

Phase 3. Vote

After an expert judging panel narrows the field to ten, people from around the world can read, analyze and ultimately vote on the submission that they feel best addresses the contest issue. These votes select the winner!

Phase 4. Promote

The celebration begins as winners are announced. But after the confetti settles is when the real change happens. Other communities across the globe will read, understand and work to replicate the solution to address a similar problem in their community.
