UNLEASH Hack Italy
EnvironPeople is one of the official partners of UNLEASH Hack Italy, which will take place on October 10-11, 2020.
UNLEASH is an international programme which gathers talents from all over the world to discuss in group, share ideas and identify solutions that can help reach the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
In 2020 UNLEASH has organized the UNLEASH2020 Hacks, that are two-day online meetings where participants try to face issues regarding sustainability.
UNLEASH2020 Hack Italy
This event, which will be hosted completely online, is the only European hackathon this year. Since it will cover the SDGs number 13 and 7, it aims to look for solutions to fight Climate Change and build a zero emissions sustainable society.
In particular, it is also necessary to consider the situation created by the lockdown in Italy and in the rest of the world, with an initial reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and, later, a new increase caused by a post-Covid economic recovery. Therefore, this hackathon will help understand how to leave the current economic structure and embrace a sustainable future.
The participants will be divided into groups according to their skills and will have the opportunity to develop new ideas and solutions also thanks to the presence of experts and mentors. At the end of the event they will present their project, which will be evaluated by a jury.
