SDG Summer School 2022

The theme of the 2022 edition of the SDG Summer School is “Open Source Health Solutions”. The school lasts four weeks, from Monday 4 July to Friday 29 July. The format is a hybrid, with teams working locally in maker spaces in Geneva, Paris, Seoul and Shenzhen, while collaborating online in a global network. The challenges come from organisations like the Global Fund and WHO, and these organisations provide mentors to the teams. In addition, PhD students working in leading health organisations in Geneva and around the globe, from the doctoral programme of the Institute for Global Health at University of Geneva, will coach the teams.

This year’s edition of the SDG Summer School is supported by the Global Fund for the Fight against AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis, and corporate sponsors Partisia Blockchain Foundation, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation and Seeed Studio.
