There’s never been a better time to make a difference in the world.
More than half of the planet lives in Asia. The region is playing an increasingly important role in the global economy, international security, and the world’s collective efforts to advance human development.
Many Asian countries today confront crucial challenges that will determine whether they continue on a sustainable path to prosperity. Among these challenges are widening income disparities, persistent poverty, natural disasters, climate change, and a range of potential threats.
For the past 20 years, we have been applying our technology and expertise to accelerate global problem solving and positively impact people, society, and the planet. We’ve shown the value of investing in early stage technology to scale solutions to social and environmental challenges. We’ve also shown how working with our technology partners and peers can open the door to innovation and progress and help grow inclusive, prosperous economies. Now, we are giving that opportunity to the next generation to influence the digital transition that’s taking place today.
To accelerate global problem solving, the GPS Challenge gives students the opportunity to address some of our region’s biggest challenges by apply their technical skills for Social Good.
