The 2021 Solution Challenge mission is to solve for one or more of the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals using Google technology.
For Solution Challenge 2021, we require your submitted solution to solve for at least one or more of the 17 SDGs. When you have submitted your solution, please review all the 17 SDGs to understand which SDG your solution is focused on and what SDG targets you are looking to solve for.
Created by the United Nation in 2015 to be achieved by 2030. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) agreed upon by all 193 United Nations Member States aim to end poverty, ensure prosperity and protect the planet.
One popular method you can use to identify your solution is an exercise developed at GV (formerly known as Google Ventures), called The Design Sprint. Usually done as a 5-day exercise, The Design Sprint is a flexible framework for solving problems through designing, prototyping, and testing ideas with users. It allows you and your team to validate ideas before going through the energy of building a product. Watch this video to learn more.
We invite university students around the world to join the competition with Google Developer Student Clubs to join the Google Solution Challenge.
