Description

There are so many challenges that London faces today - from pollution to crime and homelessness. But it can be so hard to know how you can help. We Hack London gives you the opportunity to help develop solutions to the biggest challenges the city faces today.


What?

We Hack London is a hackathon where you will have the opportunity to work together with people, NGO leaders and entrepreneurs to develop solutions to challenges in London.

Confirmed mentors and judges include:

Why?

There are so many challenges London faces today, but there are also so amazing people in the city with skills that can help to address them. By bringing people, NGOs and entrepreneurs from across the city together, we can develop solutions to the biggest challenges London faces.


How?
