Appathon 2022 Theme

UN development goals graphic

This year, we are challenging teams and individuals to design an app that supports one of the following five United Nations Sustainable Development Goals:

  • Quality Education - Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all
  • Sustainable Cities and Communities - Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable
  • Life Below Water - Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas, and marine resources for sustainable development
  • Life on Land - Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss
  • Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions - Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all, and build effective, accountable, and inclusive institutions at all levels

We recommend choosing a goal that is meaningful to you and your community, and finding a specific problem related to that goal to solve. Be sure to explain in your video how your app connects to the goal you have chosen.

Good luck and hAPPy building!
