Amaris & GCNS: Hackathon

From March 21, 2019 09:00 until March 22, 2019 17:00


LK Hackathon 002

2 days to imagine and to develop an innovative tool to help Global Compact Network Switzerland (GCNS) members to better serve the SDGs

We as the Swiss Network of the United Nations Global Compact offer services to Swiss companies and other organizations that have joined the UN Global Compact. Our members are Swiss companies and non-governmental organizations of all sizes and in all sectors.

Currently, we are present on the web and social networks. However, we are still looking for an online solution to allow our members to connect with each other.

Problems you will try to solve:

  1. Many members of the GCNS are working on the SDGs but they are not virtually networked together. So efficiency can be increased thanks to an innovative tool.
  2. Ability to share experience, connect and communicate easily between members.
  3. Manage different levels of access to allow everyone to bring innovation


Solutions ideas:
It is crucial that GCNS members know each other and can easily access other members of the network through an online tool.

This online tool should enable them to:

  • Introduce themselves / present their activities in the field of responsible economy / corporate social responsibility and in the promotion of the 17 SDGs
  • Inform the community of their news
  • Share their experiences and knowledge in the field of sustainability
  • Exchange and find solutions to their challenges in the field of sustainability
  • Make calls to find partners
  • Make calls to find help, knowledge, and information
  • Innovate for the common good

We are looking for:

  • Developers Fullstack
  • Developers Backend
  • Developers Frontend
