What is SDGs X Technology Expo?

 We will host an international expo themed around “SDGs X Technology,” where participants can share, discuss, and present technical solutions to societal issues. After the event, we will organize and post each participant’s projects on a webpage for the “SDGs Creative Idea Contests 2021.”

 From everyday technologies to new cutting-edge technologies, participants will connect a technology of their choice to a societal issue concerning one of the 17 SDGs and discuss how they contribute to the achievement of the SDGs. In the first half of the event, participants will present their projects to judges in the main room, followed by a Q&A session. In the second half, participants will be divided into individual breakout rooms, where they will present and discuss their projects with observers and other participants. Furthermore, guest speakers will give informative presentations on advanced technologies and their societal significance at the end of the event. Finally, observers and judges will vote for the best projects by evaluating all the participants’ presentations and ideas, and the winner will be announced at the closing ceremony.

 After the event, we will post and organize each participant’s research, presentations, and ideas on a web page themed around “SDGs X Technology” and submit it to the “SDGs Creative Idea Contests 2021”(https://www.adobe-education.com/sdgs-creative-idea-contests/). We look forward to listening to your projects, presentations, and even past works for competitions that were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Finally, we hope that this event will enable students to share their interests in various technologies and SDGs with peers across the globe.
