Spark Change 2021 is a solveathon event for high school students to learn about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and ignite innovation among rangatahi as a key driver towards achieving these goals.
As a participant, YOU will get to put your problem-solving skills to the test by developing out-of-the-box solutions to real challenges. Teams are provided with educational material to understand the role of SDGs in our daily lives and a case problem related to an issue in our backyard of Tāmaki Makaurau.
Pool together your knowledge, creativity, and critical thinking skills with other students to collaborate and craft an exciting presentation of your findings. You will see how in “a spirit of strengthened global solidarity,” the SDGs along with a happier and healthier future for all are more than UN+Attainable.
We aim to uphold the tikanga values of manaakitanga (extending compassion), mohiotanga (sharing of information), and kotahitanga (unity) at our event. We also cater to all experience and knowledge levels, so all we need from you is to bring yourself! Previous UN Youth experience is not needed!
Spark Change 2021 Solveathon will be held Online on Saturday October the 16th.
