Applications are now open for the #LKDForum 2021 Hackathon, an initiative organized by the European Training Foundation, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization and WorldSkills International.
The #LKDForum Hackathon will bring together 20 young professionals and 10 industry leaders who will mentor and guide the teams to develop the best solution to the challenge. If you are under 30 and have experience in the areas of web and graphic design, app development, marketing and communications, game design, and/or vocational training background/professional experience in skills related to the green industry, you can apply.
The 3 lucky winning teams will win prizes in cash: the team that develops the best solution will receive 4,000 €, the second best 2,500 €, and 1,000 € for the third. Solutions will be judged based on practicality, quality, innovation, and alignment with the theme.

Working with the private sector through Public Private Development Partnerships, the LKDF supports the establishment and upgrading of local industrial training academies to help meet the labour market’s increasing demand for skilled employees, ultimately contributing to inclusive and sustainable industrial development.
