Hi Michael, this looks great! Are you involved in the design at all? Curious what you're learning about hackathon design-- what works, what doesn't. Let me know if you can connect more on this. Thanks for posting!

Hi, Melissa - I'm a member of the UNSDG Global Schools Program, which is how I learned about it, but am not involved with this specific event. I'd be interested in hearing if any GEEP members are able to join a team!
