Swedbank Sustainability Hackathon
Online | December 11-13, 2020
Deadline for registration is December 10, however, we encourage timely registration as you can already submit ideas or join a team.
What innovations can you create now that could help protect our world?
Lab-grown food, use of data centers, household energy efficiency, smart cities, and event remote working are all very different yet productive tools to live more sustainably. Climate change has become a critical conversation for all industries, and the directions where to search for solutions are endless. Join us and hack sustainability by creating innovative tech solutions that can make a difference today!
The hackathon's goal is to find innovative solutions in various fields to create more sustainable businesses, cities, households, and individual lives. Hack the Future aims to help teams with existing projects develop their solutions by providing extensive international mentor support and advice. Developers, designers, product experts, and those passionate about sustainability are also invited to participate in the hackathon by joining a team or creating their own. Participants are invited to offer a fresh perspective on the climate change crisis and develop new approaches through the lens of digitalization and technology to work towards a more sustainable and thoughtful future.
We are looking for inspiring and innovative ideas and solutions on these topics: Smart Cities, Sustainable Business, Energy, Lifestyle, and Food.
Is your team already working on a sustainability solution? A perfect match –join the hackathon to receive advice from some of the top European experts in sustainable business solutions!
Have a fresh idea or simply high motivation to hack? Also great – find your team and see how much you can achieve in just 3 days!
We are looking for fresh and innovative ideas and solutions in the following topics. Take these as an inspirational direction, not a limitation. The overall goal of Hack for the Future remains to develop a solution for more sustainable businesses, cities, households, and individual lives.
For society to successfully live environmentally cautious, the environment surrounding us should comply. Even more, the cities we live in should create opportunities and make it effortless to live green.
Today, when social, governance and environmental issues finally are properly discussed and are at the center of the conversation, it is the responsibility of all business leaders to rethink their practices and set an example.
Even now, when various alternative energy sources exist and become more utilized, energy production causes most air pollution. The improvements still lack significance, and there is a lot of work to do left.
As individuals, it all starts with us, be the change you want to see, as they say. Environmentally friendly habits for communities, households, and individuals is the goal, and it all starts with a global mind shift.
Food is the source of energy, and uniquely necessary for life to survive and thrive. As the global economy shifts, it becomes increasingly important to change the current food production and consumption habits towards a more sustainable future.
Some of the European sustainability scene's biggest names are here to give advice and practical tips for your project to bring it to the next level. Need help in product or design domains – we also got you covered!
