Meet and Code Award

Meet and Code Award presenterer og heidrar dei beste arrangementsideane. Målet er å inspirere andre til å gjere det same i løpet av dei neste åra, fordi digital utdanning er så viktig. Vi ser fram til å sjå dei beste ideane i følgjande kategoriar.

Korleis kan eg delta i Meet and Code Award 2021?

 

Steg 1: Registrering 

Alle godkjende Meet and Code arrangement kan delta i Meet and Code Award. Når ein registrerar eit arrangement, kan ein velje den kategorien som passar best.

Steg 2: Juryen

Etter at den lokale TechSoup-partnaren har plukka ut dei beste arrangementa i sitt land, vil juryen velje tre finalister i dei fem kategoriene basert på dei kriterium som er satt for dei ulike kategoriane. Vinnarene av dei ulike kategoriane vil bli annonsert på Award Weekend. 

Invitasjon til Meet and Code Award Weekend og prispengar 

Dei tre beste arrangementene i kvar kategori er finalistane i Meet and Code Award 2021. To representantar frå den ideelle organisasjonen som organiserte finalearrangementet, vil bli invitert til Award Weekend. Award Weekend vil finne stad i byrjinga av 2021 i Europa. Dei fem vinnararrangementa vil motta kvar sin premie på 2.000 €. 

Award-katergoriar

Dei fem kategoriane for Meet and Code Award 2021 samsvarar med FNs bærekraftsmål. Meet and Code ser etter arrangement som bidrar til å nå desse måla og som kombinerar dei med IT og koding.

 

Jenter gjer IT!

Likskap mellom kjønn spelar ei viktig rolle i dagens moderne og inkluderande samfunn. Målet for denne priskategorien er å minske gapet mellom kjønn i IT og koding. Vi ser etter kreative arrangement som bygg ned stereotypar og byggjar opp jenter når det kjem til koding. Arrangement i denne kategorien kan til dømes fokusere på å tenne interessa for koding og vise kor kjekt det kan vere, spesielt for jenter, medan ein får foreldre til å bli klar over kjønnskilnadar i teknologiutdanninga.

Mangfald

Engasjement for mangfald er kritisk for suksess på individ- og organisasjonsnivå, og vi blir sterkare ved å omfavne ulike perspektiv kultur, religion, etnisk opphav, alder, kjønn og seksuell orientering. I kategorien Mangfald ser vi etter dei ideane som inspirerer barn og unge til ei verd med like moglegheiter. Vi utvidar også dette til å gjelde for mentale og fysiske ferdigheiter og ulike vilkår for å leve og jobbe. Til dømes kan denne kategorien tilpassast unge i fengsel eller fokusere på IT for folk med syn- og hørselshemming.

Koding for planeten

Visste du at du kan følgje med på bier gjennom moderne teknologi? Vi ser etter arrangement som kombinerer koding og handlingar som hjelper planeten. Alle kodearrangement som betrar undervisning om klimaendring gjennom å gjere for meir medvitne på dette emnet er verdifull bidrag til berekraftsmål 13. Døme på arrangement i denne kategorien kan vere måling av luftforureining eller verktøy for å nytta energien betre.

Samfunn

Eit lokalsamfunn er eit sikkerhetsnett for folka som bur der. Arrangementene i denne kategorien vurderer lokale høve og skikkar og tenker på kva akkurat dette samfunnet treng. Arrangementene i denne skal kreativt foreine og fremme samhald mellom menneske og nabolag med liknande interesser og mål gjennom
å "møtast og å kode". Arrangement i dennekan til dømes fungere på ein plattform i lokalmiljøet ditt.

Koding for Europa

Å jobbe saman er veldig viktig, spesielt når det kjem til å komme seg over vanskar og utfordringar når det kjem til digitalisering i EU. Denne kategorien er nært knytta til FNs mål for bærekraftig utvikling #17. Måla i denne kategorien søker å sette i gang grenseoverskridande samarbeid mellom bedrifter og foreine barn med ulik bakgrunn og lokasjon gjennom Meet and Code-arrangementer. Arrangementer i denne kategorien inkluderer; trygg og ansvarlig bruk av medier på nettet, og sjå på måter vi kan få ulike born og ungdomar frå ulik nasjonalitet saman, handtere desinformasjon og kjempe mot falske nyheiter og kreative løysingar som taklar dagens digitale utfordringar over heile Europa.
