In 2018, the 4th edition of the Estamos Comprometidos Challenge is being held in which UNESCO, Ashoka and Socialab invite young people from the region to think about initiatives to promote the 17 Sustainable Development Goals defined by the United Nations.

Acceleration Week will be held from 15 to 19 October 2018. One or two participants from each of the finalist teams at the regional level will travel to Buenos Aires (Argentina) for a week of intensive training. Training will be carried out on topics such as collaborative economy, innovation, communication, practical tools and work in the territory.

The Estamos Comprometidos Challenge has 3 stages: Ideation, co-creation and acceleration. During the final "Acceleration Week", the winning initiatives will learn about Prototyping, Communication, Branding, Leadership, Teamwork, Business Model, ODS and Social Impact.
