What does a team need to participate?


Attitude and mind-set are the most important ingredients for success. Find out what it takes to overcome obstacles and achieve each event's goals. This is a creativity and innovation project, which also involves inspiration and motivation. The global organization will arbitrate between local organizers as a security net, always helping and supporting organizers

A place

IWC can normally be held in open or closed places (a plaza, a theater, a sports hall, a bar). Currently, the situation with Covid-19 presents us with a new challenge. We encourage you to explore the best way to attract people who can participate in your group or online event: for example, using a collaborative online platform and promoting it on social networks.


Except for the general aspects like the idea recording system or the ideas aggregation and voting, each team will be free to build its own event structure. The event doesn´t need a complex infrastructure; it just needs a space where the public can write and give their ideas, a space that can attract and bring a public together. This could involve concerts, talks or what every team considers effective.


We invite every local partner to take advantage of this opportunity to find sponsors to support every local event. We ask that each local organizer give the Ideas World Cup organization 10% of the sponsor income it attracts. These proceeds will cover infrastructure and global coordination costs.

Simultaneous activities

We want Ideas World Cup to be a celebration of the creativity and innovation so necessary in today's times. Therefore, it is a great opportunity to carry out those activities to stimulate the generation of ideas from the public, for example, accompanying with inspiring talks, etc.

A coordinated marketing and content plan

Our goal is to reach as many participants to attend as possible. In order to get support from people we need to build relationships in which people know about us and the project. Every event will follow a coordinated marketing and content plan that defines the message and the strategy.

Human team

A very large team is not necessary for the organization of the event. You just have to control the content and marketing plan and, little by little, get the necessary place, sponsors and infrastructure.

The rules.

1. The competition. This document serves as a guide to the specific elements to take into account for your participation in Ideas World Cup. Following these rules, the winner can become the World Champion of Ideas for the 2020 edition.

2. Local collaborators. Local collaborators, or partners, will be in charge of organizing the events in their respective cities. Any natural or legal person may compete with sufficient technical and human resources to comply with the standards in this document. There is no maximum number of collaborators per city or per country. The organization reserves the right of admission and permanence of each local collaborator, in accordance with the rules.

3. The event should be organized following the current meeting recommendations in each country. Given the current challenges, we recommend searching for online meeting options. The important thing is that everyone who wants can have access and participate freely.

4. All events must be accessible online, so that anyone who wants to participate supporting them can do so, to channel all online activity

5. Challenge categories. The organization of Ideas World Cup has set the categories around which people will generate ideas. Local teams have the option to establish their own local topics. Ideas on these topics won’t count for the competition. These local topics may increase local public attention.

6. Sponsorship. Every local partner will have Actitud Creativa as the organizer and international sponsor. Actitud Creativa will also be the local organizer in Madrid.

7. From the organization we invite all participants to take this opportunity to find sponsors to support the different events, although the cost of organizing something like that in each city is not very high. Each participant must contribute 25% of the income for each sponsor to the organization.

Steps for organizing Ideas World Cup in your city.

Every local partner will be in charge of organizing Ideas World Cup in its city. However, the organization will be in touch constantly with all local organizers to guide them through the process. The organization will share with them its experience and know-how to solve any problems along the way.

Teams carefully read this document.

• The organization sets a meeting via Skype in order to meet the team personally, understand their situation and motivation to create this project. We will use this meeting to solve preliminary issues and lay the foundation so that every team can start organizing its event.

• After this first meeting, the local organizer will confirm they participation in the competition. Both parties will sign the Ideas World Cup agreement.

• Every week we will meet with each team via Skype. The goal of this is to check the team’s progress and also to solve problems and to bring ideas to the local teams.

• The local organizers will always have one host from the organisation at their disposal. At the signing of the IWC agreement, the organization will provide you with a host.

• For non-urgent communications, the local organizer will use the host’s e- mail to set a meeting. In case of an issue that requires immediate help, the organization will provide the contact details of every host (Skype and mobile).

The organization wants every team to feel supported and heard. Please let us know if that is not happening.

Ideas World Cup will take place next World Creativity Day: April 21st 2020
