UN SDG Action Campaign Joins The Global Hack Team To Beat COVID-19 With Creative Solutions
COVID-19 is the greatest challenge that the world has faced since the formation of the United Nations. It is also a very unique situation as the whole world is tackling the same problem at once, together. Creative and transformative solutions are needed to respond to the speed, scale and severity of the pandemic, as well as its societal and economic disruptions. The series of national hackathons, which are currently being organized around the world, provide the collaborative environment to create, test and validate solutions through rapid prototyping. The Global Hack will amplify this potential by featuring different tracks that will focus on finding solutions to a variety of the most pressing global issues, aligned to key SDG areas of focus.
