UNITE 2030 is a 48-hour virtual hackathon for the Sustainable Development Goals.
But it's also so much more than that. UNITE 2030 is an immersive experience. We don't just tell you what to do so you can get there. We let you do the legwork. We equip, empower, and inspire you, but it's up to you to develop the frameworks to create the change that YOU want to see in the world.
The mission for UNITE 2030 is to unite the next generation of worldchangers in order to ignite social change by turning their passion into action. At IDHouse, our beliefs are rooted in the power of collaboration across like-minded individuals to tackle critical international challenges. During UNITE 2030, we unite communities of young worldchangers and friends to form teams, ideate, and begin building new solutions and models to tackling the SDGs.

48 hours to change the world
The United Nations wants to change the world by 2030. But we want to do it in 48 hours. We UNITE aspiring worldchangers and come together and challenge teams to develop innovative solutions to critical international challenges facing our world. Attendees will leave with a clear understanding of how to build businesses, projects, campaigns, and rapid prototypes to tackle the SDGs, but with the potential to introduce this approach to problem solving into their companies and lives wherever possible, and take the ideas from this event forward.
The Power of the Internet
We believe that the Internet is one of the most powerful tools that brings us together. And while we LOVE face-to-face human interaction, the reality is that we live in a globalized world. It's becoming more and more essential to develop human connection that transcends face-to-face interaction.
We also believe that everyone should be able to harness the ability to change the world - not just those who can afford to hop on a plane to fly to London at a few months notice. That's why UNITE 2030 is all virtual. All you need is a computer, a good internet connection, and your drive to change the world.
Expand Your Mind
How often to you get the opportunity to capture an idea, expand on it, develop it, prototype, and present it to a panel of expert worldchangers who know exactly what kinds of solutions are needed to change the world? The purpose of UNITE 2030 isn't necessarily to develop projects that you take to action (although we'd love if you did!), but instead to get you to step out of your comfort zone - evaluating ideas, evaluating the risks of those ideas, understanding the importance of bottom-up meets top-down approaches, collaborating with a brand-new set of colleagues, creating new business models, understanding complex systems, and presenting and pitching your hard work.

Nicole Lim - Phillippines
"Participating in UNITE 2030 has become one of the best weekends I had in 2018 despite the crazy time zone difference. It was a humbling experience for me working with other people, strangers even, from culturally diverse backgrounds and fields of interest yet are enthusiastically grounded in a common goal. It aided my ability to become assertive in decision-making yet at the same time keep an open mind about inevitable possibilities that would arise in indefinite situations."

"It’s safe to say that The IDHouse has ignited flame in me that I’m so thankful for. Being able to interact with persons around the world who are just as passionate as I am for making the world a better place is truly amazing and I wouldn’t trade that experience for anything in the world. Through UNITE 2030, I’ve realized how powerful I am as one person and how I can change the world even in the little actions I make each day. Today I believe I have a different outlook on life and that change I’ve been craving will be catapulted into my own actions."
Aufia Espressivo - Indonesia
"Joining UNITE 2030 was an incredible, exhilarating experience for me. It gave me the opportunity to brainstorm and build a solution tackling SDGs along with world changers I have never met. The two days summit has improved my critical thinking skill as well as expanded my network. I got deeper understanding of ideation, business model planning, and international challenges."
