Welcome to YES! Bridge USA
YES! Bridge is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Science and Education
Since 2015, the YES! – Young Economic Summit has been a successful and growing school competition in Germany. Learn more about the YES!
In 2020, the YES! was awarded a prize by the German Federal Ministry for Science and Education for “Raising the Profile of Education and Science Diplomacy”. This is what Education and Science Diplomacy means.
We proposed a project we called YES! Bridge. The idea was to bring the YES! competition to the UK and connect British pupils with German researchers to promote the border-crossing cooperations on solving current issues.
In addition, we also received funding to invite schools from the USA to join the YES!, work together with researchers, develop solutions and present their ideas at the Final in Germany in September 2022.
All teams will have access to your YES! learning platform with learning modules to support them throughout the competition. Learning modules include for example guidelines on how to define a problem, how to develop a solution proposal or how to build a good presentation.
