Hackers of the world unite!
Are you ready to hack the planet with your unique skills? Let’s join forces to take on some real global challenges! In collaboration with BorderSessions, Hack The Planet organizes a hackathon where you get the chance to work together with the main parties who are improving this world. UNICEF and Oxfam are already confirmed to be present, taking a number of real challenges for you to solve. Do you feel the drive to make positive impact?
The collaborating organizations will bring concrete challenges that they currently face, which may be solved with your knowledge about data science, your creativity in design, or any other particular skill you have. You will work in small teams to work on the problem that you are most eager to solve. The goal is to come to a solution that will actually be implemented right after the hackathon!
Developers, designers, engineers, visionaries, entrepreneurs, strategists, artists: you’re all hackers during the Hack The Planet Hackathon at BorderSessions 2017!
