What Went On: Process, Interaction, and Participation
A hackathon was held in Buenos Aires and then replicated in Bogotá, Pasto and Lima, where data was collected and the information dissemination strategy was set up. Additionally, soccer tournaments were played with women's and LGBT+ teams. Later, a virtual World Cup was held parallel to the World Cup in Russia in 2018, through the hashtag #Equality World Cup, in which each country that played a match, also had to face issues of gender equality: sexual and reproductive rights, anti-discrimination laws, femicide figures, educational and salary gap, equal marriage, and legal abortion.
