Online education

The Open Seventeen Challenge (O17) is an online interactive coaching programme to help young global innovators connect and shape good ideas into viable social innovation projects for the 17 SDGs. The O17 supports projects that encourage grassroots public participation and citizen science through the use of open data and crowdsourcing.

The teams work a few hours a week in close collaboration with international experts to make sure that the projects they pitch at the end of the course are concrete, achievable and relevant to the SDGs, whether at a local, regional or global level. Challenges are proposed by mentors from International Organisations that partner with the O17.
