ReSolve is a one-day think tank bringing together young professionals with two to six years of experience and from all disciplines—account, creative, planning, media, insights, etc—to solve a real-world problem.

Designed to engage and inspire emerging talent in the advertising business, the second ReSolve will be held at our flagship Transformation in Los Angeles April 3 – 5, 2017.

We will target the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 14: Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources.

Careful management of this essential global resource is a key feature of a sustainable future. Learn more here.

Develop an idea, program, invention, or campaign to save the oceans, seas and marine life. All teams will present their ideas to a distinguished panel of judges and industry leaders on Wednesday morning at Transformation. Learn more on the ReSolve page.

The winning team will share its idea at the UN headquarters in NYC in June 2017.

$500 for members and non-members

Science has confirmed our beloved ocean is ailing, and that urgent remedial action is required.The need for collective action to reverse the cycle of decline in which our ocean is currently caught was recognised by world leaders last year, when they adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Within the 2030 Agenda is Sustainable Development Goal 14 which critically sets out specific targets that must be met in order to conserve and sustainably use our oceans. Saving the world is complex. We must all be part of driving the transformation to sustainability.
