Award ceremony

In the evening, Enabel invites everyone to the 'Hack the Goals" closing event. During this soiree in the magnificent Art Nouveau buildings of Atelier des Tanneurs you can meet the nominated teams and discuss their design concepts. Alexander De Croo, deputy prime minister and minister of development cooperation and digital agenda, Vice-President of the European Commission Mr. Andrus Ansip, and Jean Van Wetter, managing director of Enabel will give keynote speeches on Digital for Development.


Enabel will announce the international winner of the “Hack the Goals” contest and minister De Croo will hand over the prize of € 5 000 to the winning team during the award ceremony. The evening closes with a walking diner and concert.


Afterwards, a panel discussion on the future of Digital for Development, as either an accelerator for the SDGs or as an expensive trend, will be held. This exciting debate will be organised with high-level speakers such as Afke Schaart (GSMA), Judith Veenkamp (Waag), Isaya Yunge (Forbes 30 under 30), and Ibrahim Ouassari / Julie Foulon (Molengeek).
