Challenge Theme:

The impact of COVID-19 on education has been staggering. For some, isolation has brought focus to online learning, but what about regions that have fewer resources, or lack access to reliable internet?

By selecting this challenge, you and your team will identify an education-based system to research and map for your submission.

Some examples include:

  • How distance learning can be effectively approached and delivered
  • Supporting educators that have had to navigate and learn new digital and distance learning tools
  • Schools as community support for emotional and health needs for students

As you look toward the future of education systems through this challenge, you will need to engage with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). While many goals could apply, here are some related SDGs:

  • Goal 4: Quality Education
  • Goal 10: Reduced Inequalities
  • Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities
