As COVID-19 has turned everyone’s lives upside down, it has also affected our plans for 2020. We were looking forward to welcoming new and old talents and facilitators to an exciting event this year, but given the restraints that COVID-19 puts on both travel and the risks associated with large gatherings, we are moving all events online for this year and postponing the innovation lab.
Moving UNLEASH online in 2020 allows for us to involve and connect with global talents in new ways. Therefore, we are happy to announce that new programs will be taking place this year and that we are launching our Hacks!
The Hacks are local hackathons organized by UNLEASH alumni, but open for participation from new talents! This is an amazing opportunity for creating connections in your country, while also hacking for solutions to help reach the SDGs. Applications will open from August, so follow our channels or sign-up here for news at www.unleash.org.
UNLEASH will also be building out our online community and look forward secure that connections are leveraged and that our talent can find support both locally and internationally – as well as launch more exciting programs during the year, so stay tuned!
