For students passionate about sustainable trade

The Hinrich Foundation is dedicated to the ideal that mutually beneficial and sustainable global trade strengthens relationships between nations and improves people’s lives. We believe an effective way to realize this ideal is to inform and support those passionate about pursuing careers in trade.

We provide a host of free educational resources designed to develop and inspire the next generation of global trade leaders.

Sustainable Trade Challenge

We develop simulations that provide a deeper understanding of the forces transforming global trade and challenge students to address head-on critical issues in sustainability.

The Sustainable Trade Challenge is a student-led simulation that drives participants to balance the competing forces of economic growth, societal well-being and environmental stewardship.
