Solve for Tomorrow
So how do we help tackle social mobility and make an impact on the lives of young people?
Solve for Tomorrow is a series of year-round learning experiences curated to give young people, from as young as 11 to 25 years, the technical skills and resources to act on their passions, develop their ideas and have the chance to bring them to life.
We Are Futures helped to translate Samsung’s global mission to empower future generations to achieve their full potential into a tangible action plan for the UK through the launch of Solve for Tomorrow.
Through a unique and tailored approach to address the educational needs of young people in the UK – one that reached and engaged young people no matter their background or prior qualifications.
Solve for Tomorrow – for 16-25 year olds – provides a variety of learning programmes, from live-streamed events and online learning to an opportunity to make their idea a reality through a competition. With free learning experiences curated by industry experts, inspiring mentors and Samsung employees so young people can explore how technology could help tackle key societal issues.
- 4 in-person events hosted by experts in their field, as well as influencers live at the home of innovation,

- 6 in-person workshops hosted at Samsung KX and co-created with resident mentors.
- Partner and sponsor of London Tech Week, hosting a youth panel at Samsung KX in front of a live audience.
Solve for Tomorrow: Next Gen
The first step is always the hardest. Especially when you don’t know where to start.
That’s why Samsung launched Solve for Tomorrow: Next Gen to encourage 11-15 year olds to get involved, too.
Delivered as part of a ‘plug-and-play’ lesson format on the theme of Sustainability, Solve for Tomorrow Next Gen provides videos and presenter-set tasks for students to learn the ‘design thinking’ sprint process – a tool used by tech companies to take big ideas from concept, through R&D, to prototype.
All designed to inspire students with ideas and to consider careers that use tech for positive change, culminating in a nationwide competition with fantastic Samsung prizes for students and teachers.
350,000 educational experiences delivered since 2010.
Over 430 ‘Design Sprints’ run in schools through Solve for Tomorrow Next Gen in 2021.
92% of participants reported that “young people developed their creativity through the use of technology”
As part of its annual commitment to delivering Solve for Tomorrow in the UK, Samsung has been able to build on the legacy of previous years’ program§mes extending its reach and impact through effective partnerships with schools, across industry and deep into local communities to amplify its activities.
Harnessing this network of change-makers has enabled Samsung to deliver an ongoing series of off- and online experiences, completely free, designed to increase the connections, capabilities and confidence of young people in the UK – a pioneering concept that will be scaled up to impact even more young people each year.
Look out for more later this year with even bigger and better educational experiences with Samsung.
