The Global Resource for Anti-Corruption Education and Youth Empowerment (GRACE) initiative of UNODC has launched the "Coding4Integrity" youth anti-corruption hackathon series to respond to the growing interest in digital innovation as a catalyst for youth action against corruption. This hackathon series aims to seize the energy and potential of youth to innovate and develop technological solutions for corruption-related problems that affect their communities.
The Coding4Integrity Arab Youth Anti-Corruption Hackathon will be held in Doha, Qatar, in collaboration with the Administrative Control and Transparency Authority (ACTA) of the State of Qatar and Microsoft. The event will consist of a five-day online bootcamp from August 27 to August 31, 2023, where participants will receive training on relevant topics, followed by a five-day in-person coding challenge in Doha, Qatar, from September 10 to September 14, 2023.
If you are a young coder from one of the participating countries and interested in joining the hackathon, you can apply before the deadline of April 28, 2023, midnight CET.
