Impact Hub Manila Forwards Sustainability with Climate Change-Themed Hackathon

Impact Hub Manila Forwards Sustainability with Climate Change-Themed Hackathon

With the pandemic pushing the world into stagnance, even actions made to sustain the environment have been paused. Impact Hub Manila, along with SMART and PLDT’s 5G boost, are making sure that environmental impact and solutions will be made on July 15-17, 2021. This will serve as the next vertical for Impact Hackathon Online 2021, the longest- and widest-running 5G hackathon in the Philippi nes, running until December 2021.

 

From global warming to plastic in the ocean, we’re failing to preserve the earth because of actions that are not sustainable. The earth’s temperature is increasing—disrupting weather patterns, causing warmer water and floods, and various diseases arise from humidity and heat. More than 150 million tons of plastic are brought into the ocean, causing our fish to ingest these chemicals and exposing humans as well. The little things we do everyday have an impact on the environment one way or another, and Impact Hackathon Online aims to provide solutions for this. 

 

The three-day event will focus on coding, collaboration, and creativity for its participants to create impactful digital solutions for the environment. Three winning teams will be chosen, with P35,000 for the grand prize, P25,000 and P15,000 for the respective runner-ups! So if you’re a social entrepreneur and change-maker passionate about the climate, then don’t hesitate to sign up now!

 

Impact Hackathon Online 2021 is part of Impact 2050, a flagship program from the largest and only leader in hackathons here in the country, Impact Hub Manila, which aims to create large-scale economic progress through the activation of groundbreaking events and curated support for innovators. Impact 2050 is a multi-year program designed to equip, enable, and empower innovative individuals who want to affect change through technology.
