Event description

Description

Hack4Climate is inviting you to a global hackathon for climate change solutions!

The hackathon is decentralized (meaning you work from anywhere in the world) but you will have to physically present your solutions in the Future Cities & Societies Event on December 13 at NODE SF (1011 Kearny St., San Francisco, CA).
The best solutions will be shared in the United Nations Climate Conference (UN COP24) in Katowice Poland and will receive global attention.

Read about the challenge areas below.

#Hack4Climate will invite selected solutions to their funding and acceleration program.
Draper University is offering two $2000 value scholarships to the best solutions! Join the program and build your solutions with the help of Tim Draper!

This year, the engagement areas are:

1. Distributed Renewable Energy (production, storage, grid/exchange)
2. Sustainable Transportation (mobility & logistics, integr./shared)
3. Sustainable Land Use (agriculture & forestry)
4. Sustainable Materials & Products (‘supply chains’, circular economy)

The results were astonishing! So astonishing that now Hack4Climate is growing into a full fledged innovation program for exponential #ClimateAction!
