Join us for a uniquely challenging 48 hour international hackathon
Social Storm 2020
Social Storm is a 48 hour global hackathon based in multiple locations, with teams comprised of participants from at least two other locations, often in other countries. Virtual communication technology will play a large role in connecting participants together.
The teams will be given a Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) and tasked with finding a sustainable and commercially viable solution. This year we will be focusing on Good Health and Wellbeing (SDG 3) and
Gender Equality (SDG 5).
Get involved by signing up as a university, mentor or participant, using the links below.
We want world class, forward thinking and innovative universities to join our unique event.
Social Storm is an out of the classroom, experiential learning activity, where participants are challenged to apply theory to a real life social problem.
We will develop their skills and knowledge, to enable them to become future change makers.
In a 48-hour hackathon style event, participants will be working in teams to find a sustainable solution to one of the two challenges set.
