Xprize launches two new competitions addressing water scarcity and women's safety
The non-profit group Xprize, which creates global competitions to solve some of the world's most pressing problems using technology, is launching two new competitions today: one to address access to fresh water, the other to address women's safety.The two challenges were chosen because of their importance on a global scale, Zenia Tata, the executive director of global development and international expansion at Xprize, tells The Verge. "These issues are extremely valuable for everyone, no matter where they are," Tata says. "Water scarcity is an issue that touches every single person on this planet, and so does women's safety."
