Tuesday April 26, 2022-The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) is pleased to announce its collaboration with the IIEP-UNESCO on the 2022 edition of its international hackathon Hacking EDplanning scheduled for 6-8 May 2022. The OECS Commission invites you to participate in Challenge 3: The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States’ (OECS) School Dashboard. This challenge seeks to create a digital platform to help communities locate the nearest schools in their districts and, in case of an emergency, to identify community facilities that can provide shelter or first aid kits.
Originally held in 2021, in its second edition the event will bring together participants from all over the world: whether they are education experts, have a ‘tech’ profile (skills in data science, data analysis, AI, NLP, dataviz, UX/UI, development...), or are concerned citizens. They will work in teams during a 48-hour virtual session devoted to six challenges, with climate change and efficient use of data topping the agenda. Learn about the challenges here.
