UN Youth Hackathon

6 December – 8 December 2021
Location: Virtual

Over the last years, the world has been forced to rethink, redesign and innovate new ways of creating a shared sustainable future.

This year, together with the United Nations Statistics Division, and the global platform regional hubs of Rwanda, UAE, Brazil & China, MGCY is organizing a virtual UN Youth Hackathon to create solutions to some of the world’s toughest problems using data.

During this hackathon, the UNSD, regional hubs and partner organizations will be on the lookout for disruptive and innovative solutions that use data, machine learning and artificial intelligence to fast track progress towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

We are looking for enthusiastic data people - students and professionals in the broad field of AI, Deep Learning and Data Science. There are no strong requirements other than the strong interest in contributing to the UN SDGs.

You can only register as a team of 3 to 5 people, either as all-students or all-professionals - no individual registration will be taken into account. The registration form should be filled out as a team using this link.

The deadline for registration is November 6th.

A webinar will be held in mid-November for the selected teams to reveal the theme of the hackathon and give details about the logistics.

So don’t hesitate; register to participate in this challenging event! Should you have any questions, you can reach out to us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
