Meet and Code Award

Meet and Code Award hedrar de mest framgångsrika evenemangsidéerna. Målet är att inspirera andra att göra detsamma under de kommande åren, eftersom digital utbildning är så viktig. Vi letar efter de bästa idéerna i följande kategorier.

Hur kan jag vara med i Meet and Code Award 2021?

 

Steg 1: Registrering

Varje validerat Meet and Code-evenemang kan delta i Meet and Code Award. När du skickar in ett evenemang kan du välja en av de kategorier som bäst matchar ditt evenemang.

Steg 2: Juryval

Efter en förval av de bästa evenemangen för varje land, som görs av den lokala TechSoup-partneren ,väljer juryn noggrant de tre finalisterna, inklusive vinnarna, av de fem kategorierna enligt motsvarande kriterier. Vinnarna i kategorierna kommer att tillkännages vid Award Weekend.

Inbjudan till Meet and Code Award Weekend och prispengar

De tre bästa evenemangen i varje kategori är finalisterna i Meet and Code Award 20201. Två företrädare för varje ideell organisation, som organiserade finalisternas evenemang, kommer att bjudas in till Award Weekend. Prishelgen kommer att äga rum i början av 2022 i Europa. De fem vinnande evenemangen får vardera prispengar till ett belopp av 2 000 €.

Priskategorier 2021

De fem kategorierna för Meet and Code Award 2020 är anpassade till målen för hållbar utveckling (SDG). Meet and Code letar efter evenemang som bidrar till dessa mål och kombinerar dem med idén om IT och kodning.

Girls do IT!

Jämställdhet spelar en viktig roll i dagens moderna och inkluderande samhälle. Denna priskategori syftar till att minska könsskillnaden inom IT och kodning. Vi letar efter kreativa evenemang att fördela könsstereotyper och stärka flickor i kodning. Evenemang i den här kategorin kan till exempel fokusera på att skapa intresse och kul i programmering, särskilt bland flickor inklusive föräldrar för att stödja medvetenhet om könsfördomar inom teknik utbildning.

Diversity

Engagemang för mångfald är avgörande för individens och organisationens framgång, och genom att anta olika perspektiv blir vi starkare av vår kombination av kultur, religiöst och etniskt ursprung, ålder, kön och sexuell läggning. I kategorin Mångfald söker vi idéer som inspirerar barn och ungdomar till en värld med lika möjligheter. Vi utvidgar detta också till mentala och fysiska förmågor och olika levnads- och arbetsvillkor. Till exempel kan detta ta itu med unga fångar eller fokusera på IT för personer med syn- och hörselskador.

Code for the Planet

Visste du att du kan spåra bin med modern teknologi? Vi letar efter evenemang som kombinerar kodning och åtgärder för planeten. Alla kodningsevenemang som förbättrar klimatförändrande utbildning genom att öka medvetenheten om detta ämne är ett värdefullt bidrag till SDG 13. Exempel på evenemang i denna kategorin kunde vara mätning av luftföroreningar eller verktyg för energieffektivitet.

Community

Ett lokalsamhälle är ett skyddsnät för sina människor. Evenemang i denna kategorin tar hänsyn till lokala aspekter och seder och tänker på gemenskapens specifika behov. Evenemangen bör förena människor kreativt och främja sammanhållning mellan människor och stadsdelar med liknande intressen och mål genom passion för att "meet and code"! Evenemang i denna kategori kunde till exempel arbeta på en plattform för ditt område.

Code for Europe

Att arbeta tillsammans är oerhört viktigt, särskilt när det gäller att övervinna svårigheter och utmaningar som EU’s digitalisering ställer. Nära kopplat till FN’s mål för hållbar utveckling (SDG) # 17 Partnerskap för målen i denna kategori försöker initiera gränsöverskridande samarbete mellan företag och förena barn med olika bakgrund och platser genom Meet and Code-evenemang. Evenemang i denna kategori inkluderar; säker och ansvarsfull användning av medier online, hur vi kan skapa dialog mellan barn och ungdomar med olika nationalitet, hantera desinformation och bekämpa falska nyheter och kreativa lösningar som hanterar dagens digitala utmaningar i hela Europa.
