We believe that the future is created by having a young crowd working together for a better community. Our launching event is a Hack-A-Day (earlier scheduled for the 4th of April, but it's been postponed until further notice due to pandemic situation). During the event, you will work alongside entrepreneurs, designers, and professionals to work on compelling projects aiming to contribute to society in a meaningful and sustainable way. Sign-up for Hack-A-Day.. !!!
The Young and Bold Hack-A-day is endorsed by Nyenrode Business Universiteit
Would you like to make the world a better place? Do you want to make a positive impact by working on a challenge of an organization (related to one or more Sustainable Development Goals of the UN)? Then participate in the Hack-A-Day organized by Young&Bold and UNCTAD Youth Action Hub (YAH) the Netherlands
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.
