The EarthTech Challenge invites purpose-driven youth aged between 13-29 with a passion for solving our most pressing environmental and social issues, through the use of science, technology, communication and design. It includes a six-week online course (from the 16th December 2019 to 24th January 2020), delivered via a cloud-based platform that provides teams with seamless onboarding, access to expert educational material and mentorship. The competition aims to achieve and create exponential impact for the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals. The SDG’s are a historic and universal call to action to end poverty, solve the climate crisis, protect biodiversity and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. Individuals and/or teams can register in one of the following categories: Poverty & Inequality, Food, Water & Health Care, Climate & Energy, Sustainable Futures and Environment & Biodiversity. Entries should demonstrate how the concept relates and is aligned to one or more of the SDGs and how technology, creativity, and innovation can help to achieve the Global Goals.
