We hosted a global online youth hackathon at COP27 to create real solutions to climate change.
1864 teams from 125 countries spend 3 days , created solutions and made an implementation plan.
They did choose one of the 7 challenges, and got support from mentors, prototype, made a presentation to pitch their solutions to world leaders at COP27.
The winners will present their solutions to a panel of COP27 delegates, and join the 3 month Build for Earth acceleration program to make their solution a reality. Sound good? Apply here!
When you are ready to join the hackathon, either as an individual, a new created team or as an already existing team, you have to have the following information ready:
- Name/Name of the Team
- Name and personal info of team members (all who will participate in the hackathon)
- Contact information to all team members
Note: You have to be 16-35 years old and be able to communicate and understand English.
Do you already have team members and want to join as one team?! - Perfect! You can be as many people as you think it has to be to get the job done. Recommendation for an effective and successful team is 4-6 people in the same group.
If you don’t have a team and want to apply as a full team, no worries! You can join our matching tool Meet & Match to find team members to create a team with people from all over the world with the competences you need to be as innovative and successful as possible.
This is a fun and also a great way to meet new people with the same ambitions as yourself — creating real solutions to the SDGs.
Hackers can join the Meet & Match sessions when applying for the hackathon.
