Description


Let's embrace the movement of sustainable development and take ideas that have a social impact from concept to creation in a matter of days!!


Join us from April 3rd - 5th, 2020 at Startup Weekend Sunshine Coast and its first Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) edition in Kawana. We're gathering (future) innovators who are eager to create solutions to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. This event will be running for 54 hours, giving you a framework and mentorship to transform an idea into reality, with team formation, user research, prototyping, and pitching to investors. Come to be a hero to change the world!

How can I become one of the heroes?

By joining and taking your idea on social impact from concept to creation you will become a hero! Grab your ticket now and be part of the change!

What're the goals for heroes?

Heroes goals are to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which are proposed by the United Nations. The SDGs are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. The Goals interconnect and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve each Goal and target by 2030.



Heroes are working on these 17 SDGs to transform our world:

Goal 1: No Poverty
Goal 2: Zero Hunger
Goal 3: Good Health and Well-being
Goal 4: Quality Education
Goal 5: Gender Equality
Goal 6: Clean Water and Sanitation
Goal 7: Affordable and Clean Energy
Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth
Goal 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
Goal 10: Reduced Inequality
Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities
Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production
Goal 13: Climate Action
Goal 14: Life Below Water
Goal 15: Life on Land
Goal 16: Peace and Justice Strong Institutions
Goal 17: Partnerships to achieve the Goal

FAQ

Q: Can I participate if I'm not in active within one of the SDGs?
A: Sure, get a general ticket, and have some fun with the heroes who are aiming to achieve SDGs.

Q: Can I pitch something I’ve already started on working?
A: You can work on something you've researched, but would be willing to adapt and change as it evolves over the weekend.

Q: What if my idea isn’t selected?
A: Join another team, remember it's not about the idea.... I think many people won't be able to 'remember' as they might think it's all about the idea, so maybe we could say ... it's not about the idea, but about learning the process and connecting /expanding your network... Learn-the process by doing.

Q: Can I use any pitch props, slides, etc when pitching?
A: Props are ok, but slides are not. Remember you only have one minute to pitch!
