NextGen brings together the world's two most powerful resources:


We believe you and your friends can come up with great ideas, using mobile phones to help people make a difference in your community and the world!

We don't mean using your mobile for video games, exchanging more text message jokes, or downloading the latest tunes. We mean BIG things like improving health, expanding education and sustaining the environment.

Take your phone out of your pocket. Don't have one? That's OK. Glance over at a friend's. Now think to yourself... How could that mobile phone be used to help improve the quality of life beyond what people can just own or buy? Any mobile phone technology or service -- from the most basic to the most futuristic -- can make a difference.

Think about it. Then make a difference!
