As we read and hear daily in headlines, climate change intensifies gender inequalities in local communities around the world.
Crowd4SDG strives towards the mitigation of this phenomenon. This three-year Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Action promotes citizen science projects tackling the climate-change-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Université de Paris and its associated research lab Centre de Recherche Interdisciplinaire (CRI) are among the partners of the project.
Crowd4SDG is launching its second call for projects focusing on SDG 5 (Gender Equality) and SDG 13 (Climate Action) through the #Open17ClimateGender challenge.
Why get involved?
You can get involved by developing a project that tackles these SDGs using crowdsourcing; (information gathered or actions taken by a large group of ordinary citizens).
Once the call for projects is completed, the #Open17ClimateGender challenge will offer a five-week online interactive coaching programme tailored to global innovators to the selected 50 applicants, to help them connect and turn good ideas into viable social innovation projects and prototypes.
Five teams will then be selected to participate in an online challenge-based innovation workshop, led by project member, CERN IdeaSquare. During the workshop, teams will learn how to build a functional prototype for their project and connect with communities and social innovation experts who can help to launch and sustain the project.
The top two teams selected by a jury will be invited to present their projects to potential UN and NGO partner organisations, as well as impact investors, on the occasion of the Geneva Trialogue event.
Applicants must be 16 or older. Applications must be in English and participants should have a good command of written and spoken English.
How to apply?
The challenge is open to any individual or team of up to four people anywhere in the world as well as to individuals or a team in partner universities. The call and application procedure is available here
Applications are open until September 30th 2021 midnight CEST.
