21st century challenges need 21st century solutions, especially when it comes to creating a safer and a more secure online world. The global ICT environment is facing a dramatic increase in the malicious use of ICTs by State and non-State actors and may harm international peace and security. It is clear that bringing greater security and stability to cyberspace will require new and different ideas compared to what has worked in other domains of conflict, and collaboration across disciplines.

This is why the United Nations Office of Disarmament Affairs (UNODA) partnered with the Cybersecurity Tech Accord to launch the Apps 4 Digital Peace Competition. This first-of-its-kind Competition aims to stimulate new thinking from innovative young minds across the world. The goal of the Competition is to develop original technology-based solutions, such as mobile applications, to both help limit the use of the internet as a domain of conflict, and to increase the security and stability of our online environment.
