Would you like to be part of the solutions that transform the way agri-businesses manage their supply chain and make a real impact by supporting the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals? If so, apply now for the #LKDForum 2021 Hackathon, an online hackathon organized by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization, the European Training Foundation, and WorldSkills International.
The #LKDForum Hackathon will bring together 20 young professionals and 10 industry experts to form 5 teams, who will rise up to the challenge to develop the best solutions that can help the industry to generate less waste, carbon emissions, and reduce energy consumption. If you are under 30 and have the skills and experiences in Web Technologies, Graphic Design, App Development, Game Development, Marketing and Communications, or have vocational training backgrounds that are related to the “green industry” (e.g. water management, renewable energy), you are welcome to apply as “young professionals”.
If you are industry experts who are from vocational training institutions or representatives from companies that are going through green transition and have a tracked record of their sustainability achievements, you are welcome to apply as “mentors”.
The team that develops the best solution will receive EUR 4,000 cash prize, the second best will receive EUR 2,500 cash prize, and the third winner will receive EUR 1,000 cash prize.
