Participants work intensively over a set period, typically a few days, to develop prototypes, apps, or other tech-based solutions that address specific SDGs or related challenges. The hackathon format encourages collaboration, creativity, and problem-solving, with the goal of creating tangible solutions that can make a positive impact in areas such as poverty alleviation, education, healthcare, clean energy, sustainable cities, and more. Participants often have access to mentors, workshops, and resources to support their development process.

These events promote cross-disciplinary collaboration and foster a sense of urgency and innovation in tackling complex societal issues. By leveraging technology and the power of collective intelligence, SDG Hackathons play a vital role in fostering creative solutions and driving progress towards a more sustainable future
