Thanks for your comment. I have a different opinion.
People with more than 40 years can apply.
Moeover the scores will be compensated by their experience, as there are also scores for this:
1. Proposer’s documented experience in education and training: 20 (max)
And I believe that, for a person with experience, it is easier to write a better proposal (40 scores).
In my opinion, on the opposite, our choice goes into the direction of being inclusive with young people.
Anyhow there is a Code of Conduct Committee. If they decided that the criteria as a whole are against inclusion, we would change as they propose.

Oggetto: Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] 2019 OSGeo UN Committee Educational Challenge
I've just taken a look at this and noticed this line as one of the evaluation criteria:
> Proposer’s age (20 if <= 40 years old; 0 if >40 years old): 20 (max)
When did explicit age discrimination (i.e. ageism) become acceptable?
It seems to run counter to the OSGeo Goal of:
"be a welcoming and inclusive worldwide organization at all levels;"
Not to mention the Code of Conduct:
"OSGeo welcomes and encourages participation by everyone" - as long as you're young?
