Four challenges of digital co-creation

#SHU2021 aims to develop the digital skills of young people and adults through training in preparation for a hackathon to co-create innovative digital solutions to promote and facilitate the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN Agenda 2030.

To participate in SHU2021 you do not need to be a digital expert, but simply propose an innovative idea that provides an effective and sustainable digital solution to one of the four challenges related to one of the SDGs of the 2030 Agenda.

#zerohunger

Goal 2 of the 2030 Agenda aims to end hunger, achieve food security, improve nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.

The challenge of SHU2021 is to develop an App that leverages existing databases (such as the FAO’s Hand in Hand initiative) through machine learning and artificial intelligence systems to dynamically visualise, give relevance to and track important data in these valuable sources.

#zerowaste

Halving global per capita food waste at retail and consumer level and reducing food losses along production and supply chains is one of the targets of Target 12 on sustainable consumption and production.

SHU2021 launches a challenge to devise a digital strategy that connects consumers to share experiences, ideas, advice, etc. on preventing food loss and waste.

#zeroimpact

The United Nations Economic and Social Council has identified the circular economy as ‘a tool that presents solutions to some of the world’s most pressing cross-cutting sustainable development challenges’.

During SHU2021 we intend to embrace and support digital solutions that facilitate the application of circular economy principles to environmental protection issues, with the goal of protecting, restoring and promoting sustainable use of the Earth’s ecosystem (Goal 15 of the 2030 Agenda)

#zeroignorance

Education and awareness-raising for sustainable development are explicitly recognised in Target 4.7 of the 2030 Agenda, but it is also a key strategy to ensure the achievement of all the other goals of the agenda.

With this SHU2021 challenge, we are looking for creative and innovative ideas that combine digital storytelling, gaming, immersive reality and any other digital innovation that contributes to raising awareness on one or all of the SDGs.

A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE IN THE GREEN HEART OF ITALY
