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.
