Take the new Digital2030 Challenge!
Hello World! Remember our #kids2030 Challenge that we released in 2020? The one about Plastic reduction? Well, we have a new Challenge hot off the press! New look, new feel, and under a new name: The Digital2030 Challenge.
What is Digital2030?? Good question! Digital2030 is our new sibling brand and will be the new home for the annual Challenges, which encourages youth to explore how digital skills can be used to achieve positive change with a focus on the 17 UN SDGs.
Now without further ado! We challenge you to explore SDG #3 “Good Health and Well-Being” in this year's new Digital2030 Challenge! Explore and share this activity with youth ages 12-17 to inspire them to think about their physical and mental well-being in truly out-of-the-box ways and at the same time discover what others are doing to maintain their well-being. This Challenge focuses on data visualization, algorithms, and coding and is a great activity to do in and out of the classroom!
We can't wait to learn what everyone is doing to keep well!
