    Technovation Challenge 2017

    Code For Change

    REGISTRATION CLOSES MARCH 8, 2017

    Make a Real Change with Code mwc-landing2

    This year, we’ve partnered up with Google’s Made with Code and UN Women to offer you the chance to build an app to change your world for the better.

    In 2015 the United Nations came together and created the Global Goals – these are the blueprint of a happier world for us all. This is your chance to join the movement by using code to fix a problem you see in the world or your local community.

    Choose an issue you’re passionate about: Peace, Poverty, Equality, or the Environment.

    We’ll give the winning ideas the resources they need to be brought to life.

    Finalists will be invited to attend the World Pitch in San Francisco, August 2017.

    How it works
