SDG in Progress
Waste in Madrid is a major pollution problem to fight in the daily life of citizens. Despite the efforts of public employees to clean the city, there are innumerable waste at all times, being even greater than normal. On the other hand, Madrid is one of the European cities that generates more waste becase of a deficit in the recycling system, which is starting to be a great problem and a solution must be found.

Who we are
This platform is for anyone who wants to document projects they are doing towards tackling the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), or who wants to get inspired by other people’s projects, re-use them or re-purpose them.The platform is based on Build in Progress, which was developed for documenting maker projects by Tiffany Tseng of MIT Media Lab’s Lifelong Kindergarten, as part of her Ph.D. thesis. It has been re-purposed by Oday Darwich of University of Geneva’s Citizen Cyberlab, as part of the Geneva Tsinghua Initiative (GTI) for the Sustainable Development Goals.
There are many ways to document projects: wikis, Github etc. The point of SDG in Progress is to build up an open repository of SDG projects, which may involve hardware and software development, or focus more on grassroots or policy initiatives.
