Do you have school-aged kids at home and want to challenge them with a project that combines technology AND social impact? Every month, goIT – part of TCS’ Corporate Social responsibility team – develops a new opportunity each month for students to ideate digital innovations based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Students from across North America think of creative, tech-based solutions to solve different problems related to a specified SDG. The students are guided by influential organizations who are on the ground doing and supporting the given cause for the month.
For the August Monthly Challenge, TCS has partnered with NEOM and the Saudi Sustainability Club to challenge students to create a digital innovation that supports more inclusive, safe, and resilient living conditions. NEOM is an initiative to create a city of the future in Saudi Arabia supported entirely by renewable and affordable energy, zero-waste water systems, and many more zero-carbon footprint innovations.
Here are the steps:
At the end of the monthly challenge, a panel of judges from TCS will review each pitch and showcase some of the most exciting, inventive, and hopeful new ideas on this website. We can’t wait to see these innovative solutions! Questions? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
