Think Big

Who knows where ideas can lead.....

Since 2010 O2 and the Telefónica Foundation have funded over 8,000 social innovation ideas led by young people. Have a look through some of the successes here.

We're currently looking for big ideas using technology to tackle pressing environmental issues. Got an idea? Then find out more.

Take a look through some of the projects we have funded, or read about some of the social needs Think Big is helping to meet. Think Big can be just the start – and some of our Think Big projects and project leaders have achieved some real successes. See where O2 has helped young people to Start Small, Think Big.

The Environment Now

If you have got an idea to help the environment, such as improving energy efficiency, reducing waste or increasing recycling, and you are aged between 17 and 24, then you could apply for up to £10,000 from us to bring your idea to life.

Through Our Bright Future, the National Youth Agency and O2 have created a new Think Big programme - The Environment Now - to fund and support young people in the UK to solve environmental issues through digital technology.

Environmental issues are already presenting challenges to how we live, and we believe that digital technology can help create solutions and lead us to a greener, better world. We believe that young people have the innovation, skills and passion to drive positive change, so we want you to get thinking about the environmental problems we all face, and how digital tech can help solve them.

Big projects, big ideas

We’ve funded some amazing young people to bring their ideas to life using digital for social good. Have a look through some of the projects started through Think Big, see what is happening near you, or search for projects with aims that are similar or complementary to your idea.
