Following the success of last year’s inaugural technical sanitation contest, on March 23rd 2021, FINISH Mondial launched the 2nd annual SanTech Hackathon, led by our Technical Working Group. This year, our Technical Working Group experts have challenged innovators and practitioners to come up with innovative sanitation solutions for the crucial issue of flood-prone & high-water table areas.
From the 22 innovators from 12 countries who submitted novel ideas for the call, the Technical Working Group has selected 5 finalists based on a detailed criteria which intersects at the points of (a) addressing the geographic and climate focus and (b) the FINISH Mondial programme’s core values regarding feasibility, scalability, and accessibility/cost-effectiveness. The below outlined top 5 finalists will move forward to have their innovations evaluated by our jury of international sanitation experts.
The final 3 winners and prizes will be announced at the live webinar event being held on Wednesday, July 28th 2021, 11.00-12.00 CEST. Join us for this live webinar event to vote for the 4th award winning category – crowd favourite. Finalists will have the chance to present their ideas, followed by guest appearances and insights from international sanitation experts dedicated to the topic. Registration is possible at this link.
We thank everyone for participating and congratulate the following 5 innovations for continuing to the final round!
