About this Event

Find more information at capsulehack.io

Capsule is our attempt to break a world record for the largest hackathon in Austin, Texas with 4,000 minds creating 500 viable solutions for our climate crisis over 2-days. Participants will hack projects in 6 challenge areas at the intersection of the environment and art, health, energy, cities, education, and food.

The need for solutions for our climate crisis is dire and solutions aren't being brought to market fast enough and in an inclusive, accessible way. Many of us feel helpless when it comes to driving impact, but it's time to put people back in the driver's seat to make change happen.
