This weekend, we pivoted our efforts and joined UNLEASH – Innovation lab for SDGs, Depicentre Consulting, Nedelp, Spotlight for Transparency & Accountability and Yonedal to find solutions for the COVID-19 pandemic through a global online hack. One of our team members was part of the organising team for the ASIA GMT+5 hack, where together with 5 other young ambassadors led more than 40 people to find solutions for the current pandemic.
