About the Ideathon

It is clear that on the front lines of the response to the global pandemic, volunteers have made all the difference in the resilience of their communities and the medical sector at large. This Virtual Ideathon is an idea-based hackathon that brings together volunteers from across the world with the aim of further "Building Resilience Within Communities"

The virtual Ideathon is a three-day marathon, during which volunteer teams from major NGOs and volunteering organizations from around the world come together to develop sustainable and impactful solutions to challenges from some of the key themes of the global response to the COVID19 pandemic.
