The Wildhearts Group is committed to educating and raising the aspirations of young people in the UK through the provision of a free world-class schools programme and series of inspiring events.
In collaboration with their corporate partners, Wildhearts deliver a unique, engaging and transformational education programme for school students. Committed to empowering the next generation through a combination of employability training, sustainability workshops and mental health support, showcased through two global events: The Micro-Tyco Innovate Competition and the Wildhearts Global Youth Summit during COP.
Micro-Tyco is a student-led programme that is aligned with Sustainable Development Goals. It is an international school's competition where students work together to address a social or environmental issue. The aim is for students to generate innovative ideas; the programme builds on teamwork, entrepreneurial mindset and their response to feedback from professional partners.
The top performing teams are invited to pitch their ideas to a global judging panel at the National Finals, and the winning team work closely with Wildhearts partners to bring their idea to life.
The programme runs from January to March, with the National Finals being held in May.
