Online Challenge

Online Challenge Goethe-Institut Montreal

After 2 successful in-person Thinkathon events in Montreal/Brussels and Edmonton/Milan, it was decided that the next Thinkathon would be an online challenge. Youth from Canada and Europe wide, respectively, gathered in groups of four to discuss ways and create projects that would be helpful in guaranteeing a digitally inclusive future. Topics such as education, social relations, culture, politics, the environment, are just a few examples of the topics that the discussions and projects consisted of. Dozens of groups submitted their projects, each unique and innovative in their own way. 

The online challenge was not planned as an alternative event due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but this only forced participants to think about the implications this global phenomenon will have on the information and communcation technologies (ICT). 

The object of the online challenge was to allow youth to get creative with their projects, and give them a platform to manifest these ideas in order to positively influence the digital future.
