Room 3

Habitat Association


We will introduce Habitat Association and its 25 years of work on the field towards sustainable development goals and how it involved youth in active participation in the work, and how we created a vast network of volunteers working on closing the digital divide and formed multi-stakeholder partnerships. We have many projects that are running with multi-stakeholders. We can introduce our applicable and replicable model. We will also introduce our fast-response and multisectoral partnership to COVID-19 pandemic, how we worked with our volunteers during the pandemic and the activities that we conducted online such as Covideathon and Coronathon, which are online hackathons to find an innovative solution to provide resilience for the negative socio-economical and psychological effects of COVID-19 pandemic as well as our implementation of the training sessions.
