Would you like to make the world a better place? Do you want to make a positive impact by working on the challenge of an organization?
Then participate in the Hack-A-Day organized by Young&Bold and UNCTAD Youth Action Hub (YAH) the Netherlands.
On the 4th of April, the Hack-A-Day will take place at Nyenrode Business Universiteit in Breukelen. Several companies and foundations will present their challenges in sustainable development. During the day you will get a chance to work on these challenges and solve them.
If you are interested in participating, then you need to register in advance (the event is free of charge; which also applies for snacks, lunch & drinks). During registration you can indicate your preference for two challenges including a motivation. At the end of the Hack-A-Day one group per challenge will be chosen as the winner. Furthermore, there will be an overall award ceremony with some prizes.
