PEACE DAY HACK-A-THON
Are you inspired to contribute new creative ideas to build a more peaceful world? Would you like to learn more about peacebuilding and find inspiration from your peers and experts about potential global and local solutions? There is no better way to celebrate the International Peace Day than by lending your talents and perspective to this year’s Student Hack-a-thon: Innovation for Peace. Check out a short video of the event here.
The promise of peace is enshrined in the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, or “blueprints” to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. The SDGs delineate a range of issues, including poverty, hunger, health, education, climate change and gender equality, helping nations to interconnect and ensure no one gets left behind.
On September 21st, MBC AL AMAL the corporate social impact arm of the media giant MBC, together with a coalition of the world’s largest peacebuilding organizations +Peace, are inviting a select group of inter-disciplinary university students to spend the day brainstorming digital solutions for peace and that help further the SDGs. Students will interact with senior-level peacebuilding experts and United Nations staff who are dedicated to Sustainability and Peacebuilding. During a very full day at an inspirational venue, the SAP Innovation Hub in mid-town Manhattan, students from varying backgrounds will be grouped into teams of five with the option of pursuing one of the following categories:
Media: How can we use Media as a tool for driving social impact?
Technology: how can we utilize Technology to activate innovative solutions towards purpose-driven digital tools?
Culture: How can we address the challenges faced by youth and how can we bridge the gap between the East and West to promote inclusion?
Education: How can we strengthen education to promote societal progress and development?
All of the students participating are invited to attend a reception celebrating the International Day of Peace and the Launch of the +Peace Coalition at the end of the day to network with some of the world’s leading peacebuilders, diplomats, creatives and companies dedicated to social good. The winners of the Hack-a-thon and runners up will receive formal recognition at the reception and have their digital solutions disseminated throughout the +Peace Coalition and United Nations Peacebuilding Support Office’s networks.
