Meet and Code Award
Meet and Code is not only about coding. But coding is one of the tools that can help change the world.
We believe that only a diverse and inclusive world can secure our future, hence we try to inspire the young generation to do everything in their power to live in a world with equal opportunities and appreciation. We fight with gender stereotypes and gender gaps in IT and coding. We educate about climate change, air pollution and renewable energy. We care about local communities, our homes and neighborhoods. And finally, we want to make that change with the whole Europe. We cooperate in order to achieve the greatest goals.
The Meet and Code Award honors the most successful event ideas. The goal is to award the most creative and innovative event ideas used by nonprofits to get youngsters excited about coding. Winners of each category will receive 2000 euro prize money.
Submissions will be accepted in the following five categories: Girls do IT!, Community, Diversity, and Code for the Planet and the novelty in 2020 - Code for Europe.
