In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 goals for a better world by 2030. These goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and address the urgency of climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone.
Why are the Sustainable Development goals important for this hackathon?
The organizer, Future Position X, shares the understanding that all 17 goals are intertwined and equally important. They contribute by mainly focusing on two of these goals:
#3: Good health and well being
#11: Sustainable cities and communities
For the challenges of this hackathon, the participants must select a goal and describe why that goal fits with the case. Several goals can be selected.
