About the event

The GNEC Hackathon is organized by the Global NGO Executive Committee (GNEC), the World Assembly Of Youth (WAY) and many other organizations around the world. It is a three-week online event where teams develop projects inspired by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Our mission is to educate and empower participants to contribute  to sustainability. GNEC is  partnering  with NGOs  around the  globe to help  enhance this  experience by showcasing  the  vital work of  these  organizations.   During the event, our  NGO partners  are encouraged to host  workshops to  share  their work  and inspire participants with their mission. Sponsors are  also asked to  provide internship and mentorship  opportunities for event  winners, allowing  participants to grow and form long-lasting relationships with experts and industry veterans.
