14 Apr, 2020
The African Development Bank (AfDB) through its Jobs for Youth in Africa Strategy is launching the #AfricaVsVirus Challenge, an opportunity to create tech and non-tech solutions to tackle some of the most pressing challenges created by the coronavirus pandemic.
AfDB is calling on socially committed citizens worldwide, problem solvers, creative minds, health experts, programmers, graphic and web-designers to come together in a 72-hour digital collaborative process to bring about ground-breaking solutions addressing some of the social and economic challenges posed by the coronavirus.
Following the #AfricaVsVirus Challenge the best solutions will be selected and will be fully implemented with partners and donors in Africa and worldwide.
The #AfricaVsVirus Challenge will take place from April 17th-19th, 2020 online. Participants will have 72 hours to collaborate in teams and build solutions to specific challenges. We will start with a kick-off session on Thursday 16th at 18:30 GMT+1 and end on Sunday 19th at 18:30 GMT+1.
