Overview

World-first Eco-Hackathon

The environment is being damaged at an unprecedented rate. Charities, governments, activists and corporations have not created truly effective answers to this enormous challenge. Have you got what it takes to become an eco-entrepreneur and build radical new solutions?

This is a world-first taster workshop to learn entrepreneurial skills and a brand new approach to solving the toughest environmental problems facing humanity. The skills you learn can be used to build your own green business. It is estimated that green businesses can generate up to US$12trillion in value by 2030*. You can be a part of that future.

You might be an environmental activist, a student, an employee, a coder, a tech geek or a scientist – it doesn't matter what your background is - everyone is welcome. The only requirement is that you bring your imagination. This unique event requires a diverse group of people with different levels of skills and experience. All that we ask is that you bring an open mind and a willingness to consider the impossible.

Warning: this event could change your entire life and take your career to the next level.. Attendees will be offered exclusive discounts on upcoming Solve.Earth courses and a host of other surprise goodies.

Think you can harness these powerful tools and give a new dimension to educational technology?
