Overview

Enter the Tygron Student Contest 2019 and show us how you would tackle the biggest problems facing our world today with your vision of a bright and sustainable tomorrow.

Details

Tygron believes in transparency, democracy and sustainability in urban planning. We created the Tygron Platform with those ideas firmly integrated in the core. We provide the ideal tool to assess the present day situation, plan for the future and work together with all stakeholders to achieve a bright tomorrow for everyone.

The Sustainable Development Goals serve as a call to action to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognise that building a bright future for everyone requires strategies that balance economic growth with a range of social needs while dealing with environmental protection. Check the UN website for more info on the SDG.

We full-heartedly support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. The 17 goals address global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. Tygron aims to be part of the solution.

And that’s where you come in.

Create a project that contributes to the Sustainable Development Goals. You are free to choose what kind of project you would like to do. As long as you use the Tygron Geodesign Platform to its full capacity. That means exploring all its options and working with the extensive data sets and indicators included in the software. We do however strongly urge you to collect and use your own data and indicators as well. It will definitely impress our judges.
