Apps for (the) good
For the first time, students in Poland compete in this contest where sustainability and social-related issues are addressed through technology.
“Apps for Good” is the biggest app competition for young talents and has just arrived in Poland. Every year, this initiative, launched by the Portuguese Ministry of Education, challenges participants to use technology to address sustainability and social-related issues, under their teachers’ supervision. In this year’s edition, twelve teams from Poland had the opportunity of presenting their ideas before a jury comprised by representants of the Polish Embassy and Portuguese companies like Jerónimo Martins.
Among their projects are apps with the most diverse educational purposes. For instance, “Ecofuture” teaches how to select, recognize and find different types of waste, while “Second Brain” wants to help societies increase reading habits. The best Polish solution will compete at the final event, at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon, scheduled for September.
