Tygron invites application from students from all over the world for the SDG competition. The Tygron platform full-heartedly supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. The 17 goals address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. Tygron aims to be part of the solution.

Tygron believes in transparency, democracy, and sustainability in urban planning. Hence, Tygron Platform upholds those ideas firmly integrated into the core. Further, it provides the ideal tool to assess the present day situation, plan for the future and work together with all stakeholders to achieve a bright tomorrow for everyone.

Therefore, Tygron encourages students to involve in the bigger picture by entering the competition and creating a project that contributes to the SDG. Not only it will create awareness among students, but it will also make them aware to reach the SDG early in their career.
