The first hackathon: ’20 Hours for Climate and the Environment’ will take place on 19-20 June in Warsaw and will be devoted to topics related to environmental protection and combating climate change. We will be looking for solutions to problems that your local community faces on a daily basis.
There will be limited time to work during the event. You will have only (and as much as) 20 hours, but also the comfort of focusing one hundred per cent of your attention on finding solutions. Both of these features of a hackathon are good fuel for creativity.
The hackathon will conclude with solution presentations. The best ones will be selected by the votes of those attending and the experts advising you during the event. The best solutions will be awarded.
How to join?
It’s simple! All you need to do is fill in a short form. It’s simple! All you need to do is fill in a short form. Describe the problem you would like to find a solution to for during the hackathon and then briefly explain why you think it is worth tackling.
We will invite approximately 10 teams of three people to participate. Recruitment will take place from 15 to 25 May. We will select the most interesting and well-described challenges, and we will inform the selected teams of the results of the recruitment by 29 May.
How to prepare?
We are already inviting you to the introductory webinar ‘How to effectively implement green change in an organisation?’ (register here), which will take place on 30.05 at 11.00 a.m., and watch the recording of the webinar ‘How to create a good eco project?’.
A week before the hackathon, we will invite you to a meeting during which we will tell you how to prepare for the event, from the content and logistical side.
What will happen?
The event will begin before noon on 19 June and end in the afternoon of 20 June. It will consist of several parts. We will start by defining needs and value propositions so that we can generate ideas for solutions knowing the perspective of their audience. Each part will be preceded by a short introduction and instructions for participants. During and between sessions, you will have an opportunity to lead discussions between the teams and consult the way and results of your work with experts. You will present the solutions developed during the hackathon during the concluding session (pitching).
