WTUN Hackathon for Climate Action 2021
In 2021 WTUN launched its first Student Hackathon for Climate Action. It was open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students across our member institutions.
WTUN Climate Action Hackathon provided students an opportunity to collaborate with peers across the world on a global issue and create new ideas and solutions to real life problems.
Students from different institutions and study disciplines worked together on a solution to address a problem connected to the UN SDG Climate Action. This took place online and over an intense 48 hour period crossing multiple time zones.
During this time we had a team of experts and mentors delivering focussed sessions, and providing guidance on how to develop an initial idea through to a final product, there were planned lectures and talks running alongside, with plenty of room for questions and feedback and advice.
Students shared knowledge, skills, created friendships, and developed and nurtured innovation and entrepreneurship skills and mindsets, that will help to solve the global challenges in the future.
Hacks/products/services were developed by 12 brilliant and dedicated teams addressing;
- Climate Action
- Food Waste
- Air Quality
- Carbon Capture
- Methane Reduction
- Marine Pollution
- Circular Economy
Thank you to all of our participants! .
