Student-built software helping to address the UN’s Sustainability Development Goals

Students in my Winter 2021 ENSE 405 class Designing Apps for Collaboration & Learning explored building community software tools in support of the United Nation’s (UNs) 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In educating software engineers about the UN’s SDGs it is my hope that they take the idea out in industry – that the software they produce out in the world should at a minimum attempt to positively move us forward as a society. Understanding the UN’s SDGs can go a long way to help in my opinion. As part of student project work, I asked students to produce a brief commercial of their innovative solutions. Check them out below! (alphabetical by project name). Enjoy!
