I am pleased to share a Hackathon competition at the upcoming Forum for Global Challenges. The Forum for Global Challenges is an international biennial conference seeking to catalyze solutions for the most pressing challenges of our time – climate change and inequality. It will take place at the International Convention Centre in Birmingham, from 3-5 May 2022.
The Forum for Global Challenges is hosted by the University of Birmingham and is supported by The World Bank, UNESCO, The Association of Commonwealth Universities, UNDP, CBI, West Midlands Combined Authority, UK Research and Innovation, Thomson Reuters Foundation and the West Midlands Growth Company.
Young People aged 18-25 are invited to enter the Forum for Global Challenges 2022 Hackathon to crack a challenge related to future cities, education and employment or the green economy. Entrants will be placed in teams and asked to crack a challenge related to future cities, education and employment or the green economy. Each team will receive dedicated support and mentoring will be provided by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.
They will use the circular framework methodology – a means of creating innovative, sustainable solutions that are good for business, people and the environment. The Hackathon starts in March, and culminates in May, when the best solutions will be presented to the world’s leading thinkers and doers who gather in Birmingham for the Forum for Global Challenges.
