In the Eindhoven region, a coalition of companies, start-ups and civil society has created the Hack Global Goals Platform. An organization that is committed to contribute to these Goals by leveraging on the city’s most successful resources: the development of top-technology and the expertise and passion of its inhabitants. Talented people of Eindhoven have brilliant ideas about how to use technology as an enabler for innovative solutions.

We see an opportunity to organize a hackathon to serve these needs, leveraging on the potential of the makers, tinkerers, hackers, creatives! Beyond that, we aim to nurture a community around the cases out of the hackathon and guide challenge holders towards implementation.

The challenges this year are based on the following –

Challenge 1 Diversity and Inclusivity

This challenge relates to finding strategic and technological solutions that can be implemented in organizations or in our everyday lives to bring people closer together and break barriers of any sort. The aim is to make work people together to boost productivity while maintaining good work relationships. The solutions would relate to the goals Good Health and Well-Being, Gender Equality and Reduced Inequalities, Sustainable Development Goals 3, 5 and 10.

Challenge 2 – Sports and Technology

This challenge motivates firms in including inexpensive methods to motivate their employees to include physical well-being as an important part of their routine. This is a minor step to a great impact. Through health and nutrition, a channel to educate and spread awareness on sustainable life style choices is created. The solutions would relate to the goals Good Health and Well Being and Responsible Consumption and Production, numbers 3 and 12.

Challenge 3 – Bridging the Digital Skill Gap

This challenge helps firms in search of people skilled in specific areas to find the right people, train them and employ them. It solves a multitude of problems based on unemployment, socio-economic growth and not the least, bridges the skill gap of people from various parts of the world. The solutions would relate to the goals Quality Education and Decent Work and Economic Growth, numbers 4 and 8.

We invite participants to work as teams or as individuals on challenges set by organizations in these themes. The agenda for the event consists of the following parts:
